Driving

Below are driving directions to our building. If you enter “The University of Akron” on Google maps, for example, you will be directed to an area in downtown Akron that is not accurate to our location.  We suggest you enter an intersection, the "Hill Street and E. Buchtel Avenue 44325." This seems to work in the map search programs for correct directions.  Guzzetta Hall is on this corner.  The doors to our Center for Dance and Theatre are East of the corner -- glass doors off a half-circle turnaround in front of our building.

More information on where to park for the conference will be added soon.
