From Montgomery 

Turn right onto Cleneay Ave. to the stop sign. Make a left, and go up the hill until you see the entrance for the parking lot on the corner of the bend- this is the College of Business/Smith lot. If that lot is full, continue going straight towards the next stop sign. Follow the circle around and make a right at the stop light (Dana Ave/Francis Xavier Way).  The entrance for University Drive will be on your right about 1/10 of a mile down the road. There will be volunteers to direct you.

From Dana

After turning right onto Francis Xavier Way, take your first right and then another right into the parking lot. This is the College of Business/Smith lot. If that is full, go back towards Dana Ave. Make a right onto Dana Ave, and drive about 1/10 of a mile until you see University Drive on your right. There will be volunteers in TEDx shirts and signs to direct you to the venue.

From Victory Parkway

Before approaching the light at Dana Ave. and Victory Parkway, there will be a small, unmarked entrance where you can access the University Dr./GSC lots on the left-hand side (about 2/10 of a mile from the light). Please use caution if using this entrance.  There will be volunteers in TEDx shirts and signs to direct you to the venue.

After Parking

There will be volunteers in TEDx shirts and signs to direct you to the venue. From the College of Business/Smith lot, you will walk around the building, towards the Conaton Learning Commons. The Conaton Learning Commons (CLC) is located on the corner of Francis Xavier Way and Dana Ave. From the University Dr./GSC lot, you can take the stairs up to the academic mall and cut walk towards the McDonald Library. Walk towards the left of the building where the construction fence is (there is a walkway) towards the glass door. Once inside, take the elevator to the 3rd floor. Make a left and take the stairs straight up to the 4th floor. The Kennedy Auditorium is on the 4th floor (street level at Dana Ave. is the 4th floor, street level at the bottom of Francis Xavier Way is the 3rd). There is an elevator within the CLC. 

We will have volunteers throughout to guide and help you along the way should you need it!
