Do I need a rental car during Alumni Weekend?

The Comfort Suites, Hilton, Sheraton, and Staybridge Suites are a 15-minute drive from campus, and not in walking distance to UD. If you decide to stay at one of these hotels, then you would need to rent a car, or take a taxi or bus to campus.

If you decide to rent a car, please note that parking will be limited in Newark. City of Newark parking fees will apply during Alumni Weekend.
