Ithaca is in upstate New York, roughly equidistant (about a 4-hour drive) from New York City; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Toronto, Ontario; and Montreal, Quebec; and a bit farther (a 5.5-hour drive) from Boston, Massachusetts.

One can fly into the Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport (about 10 minutes from campus) or the Syracuse Hancock International Airport (a 75-minute drive). Three international airports have flights into Ithaca – Newark (United Airlines), Philadelphia (USAirways/American), and Detroit (Delta); many others have flights into Syracuse. Car rentals are available at both Ithaca and Syracuse airports. Taxis can be called from the Ithaca airport and there is a shuttle service that can be prearranged to and from Syracuse. More information will be forthcoming.
