How to get to the School of Music

 

Directions from the North, South, West, and East to River Road

 

From the North: From US 441 and US 129 go under the Athens Perimeter and make an immediate left onto the Athens Perimeter (Loop 10). Continue on the Athens Perimeter following the signs for GA Loop 10 (you will have to exit right to stay on the loop) to the College Station Road exit (Exit #7). Exit right onto College Station and, at the first traffic light, turn right onto River Road.

 

From the South: Take US 129/441 or GA 15 North into Watkinsville. In Watkinsville, Highway 15 and US 129 join to become the main street. Continue North into Athens. Approaching Athens, at the Clarke County line, there will be a sign indicating Highway 441 North and a right turn (there will also be a sign for the University of Georgia). Turn right at this sign onto Loop 10, the Athens Perimeter. Proceed on Loop 10 until reaching exit #7, the College Station Road exit. Exit off Loop 10, then turn left onto College Station Road. After passing under the by-pass bridge, turn right at the second traffic light onto River Road

 

From the West: The easiest route is to enter Athens by taking GA 316 to the Athens Perimeter. Bear right onto the Athens Perimeter (Loop 10) traveling east (For reference purposes, there is a sign for the University of Georiga/Athens By-Pass at the junction of GA 316 and the Athens Perimeter). After approximately five miles on the Perimeter, exit onto College Station Road (exit #7). Take a left onto College Station Road. After passing under the by-pass bridge, turn right at the second traffic light onto River Road.

 

From the East: Take US 78 West to Athens. In Athens, travel under the Athens Perimeter (GA Loop 10) then take a left at the next traffic light onto the Perimeter going westbound. Exit the Perimeter at the next exit, which is College Station Road (exit #7). Turn right onto College Station Road and, at the first traffic light, turn right onto River Road.

 

From all directions, once on River Road

 

Follow River Road through the new East-campus Village complex. Bear right at the split just past the East-campus Parking Deck to stay on River Road. At the first street entrance on your left (you will have just passed the new art building and the Hugh Hodgson School of Music on your left), turn left and proceed up the hill. Once you reach the top of the hill take the first left into the parking area for the School of Music (after you turn at this corner into the parking area, the School of Music will be directly in front of you and the Performing Arts Center will be to your right).

From the Top Parking Lot: Dancz Hall is located in Room 264 of the School of Music. It is most easily reached from the top parking lot (behind the school) to which you have been directed. Once parked, proceed down the sidewalk toward the center of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music. Approximately halfway down the sidewalk (at the first steps) bear right on the alternative sidewalk that bypasses the steps. Proceed around the curve until you reach a right turn onto a sidewalk leading to a set of glass double-doors. Enter the Hodgson School of Music through this side entrance. Dancz Hall is immediately on your right.
