    The Oread hotel does not provide a shuttle service. There are shuttle and limousine services we can refer you to that cost approximately $100 one way.

    Yes! Unless a person has an issue that makes it hard for them to walk, it is a nice and easy walk from our hotel to almost everywhere on campus.
