If you are traveling to Atlanta for POEMs via plane, then the easiest way to reach Tech is the MARTA (~$2.50), though a Taxi is a reasonable option as well (~$35). The subway (MARTA) runs from the airport to within a few blocks of campus. At the airport, follow the signs to MARTA, which is the Atlanta Subway. You'll see the signs after arriving at the baggage claim area.

The airport is the end of the south line. There are a couple of MARTA stations that are close to campus; the North Avenue station is within walking distance and the Midtown station operates a trolley to campus and it's the closest to the hotel. Maps below show detailed directions to the venue. To reach campus from the North Avenue station, ride the train north, to the North Ave MARTA station.

  • Disembark at the North Avenue Station
  • Exit the station to the south (opposite direction of the train)
  • Upon exiting the station, walk west along North Avenue and cross the interstate
  • Continue on North Avenue and turn right onto Cherry Street.
  • Walk past the road barrier and the Skiles building to the large sidewalk. Go down the steps and sidewalk to the Student Center straight in front of you. The conference is in the Student Center Theater on the 1st floor.
