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.
