They have flights from Dulles to Charlottesville. Its at least a 2 hour drive (about 100 miles) from Dulles to the town. There must be some flights into Charlottesville as Virginia is a very large state. You can rent a car and drive it if you want, and I would recommend doing it.

The drive is relatively easy. From Dulles, you go to 66W. Then you get on I-29 South and you stay on 29S for like 80 or so miles. 29S feeds right into UVa. It's basically idiot-proof.

Do you have access to a car whilst in Dulles? Maybe taking a plane would be easier. Like another poster wrote, driving there will be about 2.5 hours or so. Just keep in mind that cville's airport is off some road (earlysville?) and you'll be looking at a taxi cab ride that will take a solid 20 minutes or so before you hit the campus...

Its a pretty long boring rolling hills sorta of drive. But if renting is cheaper than another flight, go for it. Like the guy above said, it isss an idiot proof drive (even I made it).
