Shopping and Restaurants
Looking for a day-trip? You are just 30 minutes away from some of the best shopping and eating in the country. Area malls hold all the large department stores, with lots of boutique offerings that will give you a new appreciation for Midwestern creativity.
Academic Year Shuttles
Denison runs shuttles (Big Red Express Shuttle) to the following areas:
- Easton Town Center (twice a week on Friday and Saturday)
- Newark/Heath- Local Shopping, Target, Walmart, etc., & Dining (weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays)
- Polaris Fashion Place (once a month)
- Tanger Outlet Mall (once a month)
- International Grocery Stores (twice a month)
Of course, lots of great shopping — including restaurants, a grocery, and a pharmacy — is within walking distance in Granville.
Denison is providing free shuttle service from John Glenn International Airport (CMH) to campus on January 28 & 29 only. Shuttles are offered every hours fro 8 a.m. to 7 p.n.
Please sign up for the shuttle that will arrive closest to your scheduled Move-In time. All reservations will be verified with Housing. If your flight arrives several hours prior to your Move-in time, we ask that you remain in the airport and continue to wear your face mask, and remain at least six feet away from others until the time of your shuttle and subsequent Move-in.
Shuttles are only being offered from the airport. If you arrive to Columbus via a bus, you will need to find a ride to the airport to catch the shuttles.
If you need an airport shuttle outside of these times or have questions, please contact:
