 If you are coming from a distance, it is best to take I-80 and the 72nd Street exit.  Turn north and stay on the right.  Go just less than a mile and turn right at Mercy Road.  The main campus entrance is the first left turn.



You may park in any regular spot on campus that is not reserved for handicapped or other designation.  Warde Conference Center is the first floor of the building ahead and on the left as you come down the hill from Mercy Road.  There should be plenty of parking if you go right at the roundabout.
