After crossing the San Marcos River on Aquarena Springs Drive, continue through the traffic light onto University Drive (Aquarena Springs Drive becomes University Drive). You will see the main campus to the right of University Drive. Bear right at the second traffic light to stay on University Drive (do not continue onto CM Allen Parkway). Just after the circular, red brick Theatre Center on your right, turn right onto Edward Gary. Then, turn right onto Woods Street. Visitors' parking is available near the 11-story J.C.

The parking attendant can give you further directions to the Academic Services Building-North, or you can proceed into the 11-story J.C.

Continue up the hill to the breezeway of the Academic Services Building-North. Walk to the far end of the breezeway, and enter the building to your right, past the soda machine and the drop box for correspondence study assignments. Take the elevator or the stairs to the third floor. Our offices are located in Room 302.
