Directions to Dickinson College

Dickinson College is easily accessible from Rt. 81 or the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  The GPS address and directions from various parts of Pennsylvania can be found on Dickinson's Maps & Directions page.

The conference will be held in the Stafford Auditorium of the Rector Science Building, which is #17 on the campus map. The main entrance is on Louther St.

Parking is available on Louther St., in a lot directly across the street from Rector (which is behind the Waidner-Spahr Library), and in a lot behind Rector accessible from Louther St.  You may park in the campus lots.  Dickinson's Department of Public Safety is aware of the conference and will not be issuing tickets in lots normally restricted to faculty and staff.
