Getting to UNC Wilmington
CHECK-IN IS THURSDAY, JUNE 1ST, 6-10 P.M. EDST
Thursday night is registration-only with a social event. We encourage you to fly in, get settled, and come hang out with your sisters. Convention will mainly take place Friday-Sunday, but we do encourage you to arrive during the check-in window from 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Eastern time.
We HIGHLY recommend that all traveling by plane fly into Wilmington International Airport (ILM). However, there are two other options to consider. Please note that we are unable to provide shuttle services from these farther locations, and carpooling and/or using a taxi service is up to your personal financial discretion.
You may choose from THREE different airports to fly into depending on which airport will be cheaper for you. Please review and keep in mind the information below as you arrange your travel.
