**Directions to Blockley Hall and the Nursing Ed. Building**
Blockley Hall is on a small street called Guardian Drive, one block south of
Baltimore Avenue, at about 37th Street. By car, it can be approached from 38th
Street only. From 38th, turn onto Guardian, which is the first road/driveway
south of Baltimore and Spruce. It runs east from 38th Street, which is called
University Ave., at that point. Blockley is the first building that fronts onto
Guardian Drive on the right. Just past it is a new building with blue trim
(Stellar-Chance Labs). The next building past that is the Nursing Ed. Bldg.
To get to Blockley by foot, you need to get to Hamilton Walk, which is one
block south of Spruce Street and runs from 38th to 36th. From Hamilton, you
need to walk south THROUGH the Richards Medical Research Lab. There is a
passageway with about 3 sets of brown glass doors and a security guard
inside. When you come out the south side, you will be facing the *Nursing
Ed. Bld.* on Guardian Drive. Turn right. You will pass, on your left, a
building with blue trim. The building just after it is Blockley Hall. The
entrance is immediately after the skywalk. Inside, turn right and you will
find the elevators. Come to the 11th floor. Registration will be in room 1113, which is right next to the elevators.
**Directions to Steinberg Hall-Dietrich Hall**
Steinberg-Dietrich Hall is part of the Wharton School. It is located at 37th
Street and Locust Walk. Locust Walk is between Walnut and Spruce Streets. You
can drive on either of those, but not on Locust or 37th. (They are
pedestrian-only on campus.)
Looking forward to seeing you all,
