State University of New York at Albany
Set on over 600 acres at the foot of the Shawangunk Mountains, the State University of New York at Albany is an educational, creative, and economic hub of the the Capital Region. Blending soaring, open-concept postmodern spaces with sleek contemporary design, the beautiful UAlbany campus is home to over 13,000 undergraduates and 4,500 graduate students.
Many visitors enjoy the spring season around Albany for its outdoor recreation activities. If you're in the area for a couple of days for Coast to Coast, consider heading to Indian Ladder Farms to hike the trails and feed the sheep, or to Thacher State Park, which sits atop the Shawangunks and features incredible views of the valley -- especially of downtown Albany and of campus.
Located at 1400 Washington Avenue, near the intersection of I-87 and I-90, UAlbany's campus is easy to get to from any direction. From I-87 north bound or southbound, follow I-90 eastbound to exit 2, go straight through the light, and bear right until you come to Visitor Lot 3, which has free parking on the weekends.
Visitor Lot 3 is adjacent to the Humanities Building, where the Albany portion of the conference will be centered.
Our hub for the Coast to Coast Conference will be the Humanities Building, located on the southwest corner of the Podium (our version of a quad), adjacent to the University Library.
From the parking lot, the Humanities Building will be the first building you see.
