There are numerous ways to enter the SUNY Old Westbury campus, but by far the easiest is to take either the Long Island Expressway or the Northern State Parkway to the appropriate exits for Route 107 North. This will be delineated as Jericho or Oyster Bay.Take Route 107 North approximately one mile from both the LIE and Northern State. On the left you will see the entrance to SUNY Old Westbury, which is marked by a traffic light.
You turn left onto the campus of SUNY Old Westbury, and drive approximately three miles on a one way access road to the Campus Center. We will guides along the way with lights to assure you that you are proceeding toward the Campus Center. At the point where you will be turning left into the parking lot, there will be someone guiding you in, but you will be making a left into a large parking lot. Park in that lot, but park as close to the Campus Center as you can. It is a large multi-level white building. You will see the enclosed walk ways which lead to the Campus Center.
Park and walk into the Campus Center. The Maguire Theatre is located very close to the entrance to the large Campus Center.
