Note to Prospective Visitor in HelpDesk
I'm happy to help with your travel arrangements for your visit to NRAO here in Charlottesville.
Information about the Data Reduction Visitor program is available here: https://science.nrao.edu/facilities/alma/visitors-shortterm
Information about visiting NRAO is located here: https://science.nrao.edu/facilities/alma/scientific-visitors-info/naasc-visitor-support
We can pre-pay your airfare and arrange for direct-billing of your hotel stay. If you'd like to propose flight itineraries, please send them to me via this ticket, and to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org
). Our travel agent (Vicki) will then run the reservation and send it to you for final approval. We'll need your full name as it appears on your travel documents, as well as your DOB and nationality.
Typically, we book data reduction visitors into the Residence Inn, which is located next to a large shopping center. The rate includes breakfast, but it not quite walking distance from NRAO. There is bus service, however, and it is also possible that someone could provide a ride to NRAO each day. We can also book you into one of the other hotels listed on this page: https://science.nrao.edu/facilities/alma/maps-and-directions/maps-and-directions
. Unfortunately, rental car reimbursement is not included in our visitor program.
Just let me know where you'd like to stay, your proposed travel itinerary and:
Your full name
City and State of Residence
Date of Birth
