The easiest way to get to the ERC and adjacent structures such as the Science Building is via the N. Anthony Blvd entrance off Coliseum Blvd. This entrance is at the southwest corner of the campus, just east of the bridge over the St. Joe River.
Visitors entering at Anthony must immediately travel right and then counterclockwise in front of Kettler Hall (the first building) before returning to W. Campus Dr. (extension of N. Anthony), where they should turn right to continue north, parallel to the river. Following the signs for “Env Resources Center” the Science Building is the next building on the right – it has an attached greenhouse. The ERC is the building north of there at the turn in the road, tucked back by the river, and pictured below.
Here is a map of the campus and vicinity with the ERC marked as building 9, as well a direct link here to our Google Maps Directions.
There are a few visitor parking spots right at the ERC – one handicapped space and three spots for visitors. After that, consider the large lot (P11) south along W. Campus Dr. and next to the St. Joseph River. The white lined parking spaces are free to the public to use all the time. The spots closer to the ERC marked with green lines are reserved for faculty during normal business hours. However, government vehicles can park in those spots at all times, and are free and open to the public on weekdays after 5 PM and weekends. This works nicely, as most of our public events are during those “off hours”!
Visiting the ERC during normal business hours of the work week and all the visitor spots happen to be taken? Stop in the ERC building first and pick up a free temporary guest parking pass. ERC staff only needs your name and you will be given a guest permit to hang from your rear-view mirror during your visit. Then you can park anywhere (green lines included) worry free!
