Travel & Lodging


The Colloquium will begin the evening of July 22, 2024, with a Welcome Reception. Courses will begin the morning of July 23. Each course meets from about 9am until about 4pm July 23-26. This schedule may vary slightly depending on field trips and the individual needs of each course. More detailed schedules for each course will be posted on the course pages in May and June.

Breakfast and lunch are provided July 23-26.

POTENTIAL CHANGES: If a course is under-enrolled by late May, we may decide not to run that course and to offer you admission to another course.



Although most people fly into Albuquerque (ABQ), it is possible to fly straight to Santa Fe if you are coming from or connecting through Los Angeles, Dallas, or Denver. American Eagle has flights from L.A. and Dallas, and Great Lakes Airlines has flights straight from Denver to Santa Fe.  Also, there are now flights between Phoenix and Santa Fe. It’s worth looking into as this may significantly cut your travel time; Santa Fe is about an hour from Albuquerque.

If a course is under-enrolled by late May, we may decide not to run that course and to offer you admission to another course. For this reason, we ask that you wait until your course has been confirmed to purchase plane tickets.


Once you are in Albuquerque, it is possible to get to Santa Fe via the NM Rail RunnerBecause the train doesn’t go to the airport, you actually have to grab a bus first. So, although the train is enjoyable, the logistics of it are cumbersome.  


If you fly into Albuquerque, we recommend you forgo renting a car and take the Groome Shuttle. The cost for this is about $35 one way.  This shuttle will take you straight to the hotel (see below).  If you fly into Santa Fe, an Uber to the hotel might be your best bet. There are also a few local drivers who can provide a car service from the airport to La Posada for about $50. Please reach out to us for contact info if you are interested in this option.

We do what we can to reduce the cost to participants who are traveling to our fair city. Renting a car is not necessary, as the hotel is conveniently located downtown, close to all sorts of great restaurants, museums, shopping, etc. In addition to the shuttles above that will get you to and from the hotel, the hotel itself has a shuttle that will take you anywhere within a 2-mile radius, and we will be running daily shuttles from the hotel to our campus for each day’s sessions.

If you plan to stay for a few extra days in Santa Fe or would like to explore the city outside of course time, you may want to rent a car.


We have been fortunate to partner for many years with La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa. This is a premier resort in Santa Fe with absolutely beautiful rooms and grounds that are close to downtown Santa Fe as well as Santa Fe Preparatory School. We will provide a shuttle from La Posada to and from Santa Fe Prep every day of the Colloquium.

The Colloquium rate at La Posada is $230/night. (The usual rate for this time of year is $400+/night.) Reservations can be made here. Reservations bust be made by June 18, but we encourage you to book early, as we have a limited number of rooms.

We hope you’ll give yourself an extra day or two to enjoy Santa Fe and the surrounding area. La Posada will honor the group rate three days before and after the conference (assuming rooms are available). To extend your reservation beyond the Colloquium dates, book your reservation at the link above and then contact Director of Sales Mark Krumback directly to request an extension of your reservation.

This year, we are offering an additional hotel partner, The Sage Hotel. This more economical option is a little farther from Santa Fe Prep but still conveniently located close to downtown and across the street from the popular Railyard district (and next door to Whole Foods). Please note that we will not be able to provide a daily shuttle to and from The Sage, so this option might be better for those who plan to rent a car anyway. Reservations can be made here.
