Directions to Fine Arts Center

FROM 95 NORTH

From 95 S beyond Warwick, stay in left 2 lanes.

Take Rte.4 South (marked Exit 9) which is a slow left turn rather than an exit. Rte 4 South merges into Rte. 1 South, which you may or may not notice.

Continue along as this road becomes a two-lane road (each direction), and as it feels more rural.

Continue straight, past Rte. 138 E, marked Jamestown/Newport. DO NOT TAKE. Take right turn onto 138 W, marked University of RI, which you will see once you notice a Texaco Station, car dealership, Holiday Inn Motel, and finally a Mobil Station on the corner.

Continue slowly along 138W for about 6-7 mi. (one lane, each direction).

Proceed past one traffic light, and shortly thereafter, at your second light, turn right onto UPPER COLLEGE RD., the main entrance to the University.

Once on UPPER COLLEGE, you will see Fraternity Houses first, then a Visitor Information Center where you should stop to get a visitor pass. It is not necessary to stop at the Visitor Information Center in the evening or on weekends.

Then continue straight a very short distance until you see the FINE ARTS CENTER, corner Upper College & Bills Rds. Take a right onto Bills Rd., and park in large lot behind FINE ARTS building.

Budget 45 min.- 1hr. door-to-door, Providence to Kingston. (This is conservative.)
