Travel Information & Reimbursements - Universities

Hotel accommodations for the universities will be at the Hampton Inn located minutes from the UT main campus and immediately off of I-475 (right next to Holiday Inn Express & Suites). Please call 419-214-5555 to confirm your rooms and ask for the UT Invitational Sales Competition block.

    • Hotel reservations need to be made by each university by January 26, 2018 to guarantee space and UT reimbursing the room.  UT is reimbursing for 2-3 guest rooms per university for Thursday night and Friday night. Incidentals and extra nights are the responsibility of the guest. The rooms that are covered will be based on the mix of who is competing (student competitors of the same gender are required to share a room) and will include 1 faculty room.
    • The hotel block includes standard rooms and suites.  The suites are very spacious, and some of the suites have 2 queens and 1 sleeper sofa.  If you are bringing alternates that match the genders of your competitors, we suggest the suites so you can avoid paying for the extra room(s).
    • The Hampton Inn has free hot breakfast daily and free high speed internet/wireless in the guest rooms and lobby.
    • The Hampton Inn will provide space on Saturday to hold luggage after check-out.

Reimbursements will be made for airfare (2 competitors and 1 faculty) and airport transportation service (1 each way) OR mileage (1 vehicle).  Airfare booked after the deadline will be reimbursed on a sliding scale.  

Airfare must be economy/coach arriving at the Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) and booked by January 26, 2018.   The Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) has better service and is less than 1 hour from the hotel and UT main campus.  

Airport transportation service from the DTW Airport to/from UT main campus is available 24*7 through Detroit Airport Town Cars (1-800-381-1714).  Reservations are needed and let them know you are with the UTISC to get our special rate on towncar and SUV drivers.    

Mileage will be reimbursed for one vehicle for those who are only driving and will be based on the government rate.

Missing or incomplete demo kits will be taken out of the reimbursement.
