If you are taking a taxi in Gainesville, any cab driver should be able
to take you to either the Reitz Union Hotel on campus or to the
Holiday Inn - University Center, adjacent to campus.
If you're driving, it's useful to know that with just a few exceptions
Gainesville is laid out on a grid system. Avenues, Places, Road, and
Lanes (just remember APRiL) run east-west, while most everything else
(streets for example) runs north and south. University Avenue divides
North from South, and Main Street divides East from West.
To get to the conference hotels, here's what you should do:
- Get yourself to the intersection of University Avenue
(a.k.a. S.R. 26) and West 13th Street (a.k.a. U.S. 441). This is
the northeast corner of campus. If you're looking for the HOLIDAY
INN you just found it (it's on the northeast corner of this
To continue to the REITZ UNION:
- Go south on 13th Street to Museum Road and make a right turn.
- Continue on Museum Road through two traffic lights. Take the first
right (I think) after the second light (there should be a sign for
Reitz Union). This is basically the driveway for Reitz Union and
there's a circle at the end. You can pull up there and go inside
to check in. Ask the clerk for a parking pass and a campus map
when you check in.
You can visit
to see a campus map. The last "major" intersection in the upper right
corner of the map is the intersection of University Ave and West 13th
St. (location of the Holiday Inn). If you enter "Reitz" in the Map
Search box it will show you where Reitz Union is. You can click to
zoom in. Of course you can also find Dauer Hall, University
Auditorium, and Griffin-Floyd Hall in the same way.
