Take I-94 to the Saint John's exit.

Exit 156 to Saint John's is approximately 10 miles west of St. Cloud.

To get to the Prairie Kiosk in the Abbey Arboretum:

Go south about 1/2 mile.  The kiosk is a small wooden structure in the prairie on the left-hand side of the road.

To get to the Outdoor U offices: 

Continue until the 4-way stop (about 1 mile total) and turn left. Continue for 1/4 mile until the small brown Science Lot 1 & 2 information sign. Turn right, then take the first left into Science Lot 2 entry. The New Science Center is just down the hill from the parking lot.

You can enter the building from the back door, continue straight down the hall past the bathrooms and take a left. Outdoor U offices are in rooms 104, 106 and 108. (Hint: The building is a large square. If you take a wrong turn, continue around the hall and you'll find us!).

Pedestrians on campus:

If you are walking from another location on the SJU campus, please enter through Peter Engel Science Center (building #9 on the campus map). Follow the yellow signs beginning at the main entrance of the building to direct you to the New Science Center.
