Upon arrival at PACE University, please check in at the Auxiliary Services Office located on the B-Level of One Pace Plaza. This part of the campus is most easily accessed from the Spruce and William street entrance. The phone number for the Auxiliary Services Office is (212) 346-1015. Check in / check out is available during the hours of 9:00 am - 5:00 pm on weekdays and 9:00 am - 1:00 pm on weekends. Pace will be conducting extended check in hours on July 8th ONLY. On July 8th, the Auxiliary Services office will be open from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm for check in. Please keep in mind that summer staffing at PACE University is extremely limited. In order to guarantee that a staff person will be available to check you in or out of PACE, please be sure that your arrival and departure schedule coincides with the above mentioned times.


It is suggested that you do not attempt to take public transportation from either JFK or LGA airports to PACE University, especially if you will be arriving late or carrying substantial luggage. Instead, it is recommended that you either take a cab (expect to pay approximately $35-40 one way) to PACE or use the New York Airport Service, a convenient and less expensive shuttle service which provides transportation from both JFK and LGA airports to downtown Manhattan and various other locations. Shuttles depart approximately every half-hour from both airports, beginning at about 6:30 am and running until 11:00 pm. Signs for the shuttle service are located outside of baggage claim areas.

Perhaps the least expensive, yet still convenient, option is to take the New York Airport Service to Grand Central Station (approximately $10.00 one way) and then take a cab from Grand Central to PACE University (approximately $7.00 one way). It is slightly less expensive if you reserve your shuttle trip on-line, though their website! For more information, including schedules, sample fares and online reservations, see:

Getting from PACE University to the GECCO-2002 headquarters located at the Roosevelt is generally safe and convenient via public transportation.

The Roosevelt Hotel is directly across the street from Grand Central Station, which is on the same line as the #4 and #5 train or one transfer from the #1 or #2 line.
