Detailed directions, including mass transit options, to Pace University’s downtown campus can be found at http://www.pace.edu/about-us/directions-to-all-campuses/nyc-campus, as well as a link to the campus map.

Transportation and Parking:
We encourage attendees to use mass transit to reach Pace University’s downtown campus.  Parking on the street is difficult.  While there are a number of parking garages in the immediate area, they may be prohibitively expensive.  There is no campus parking facility.

 If traveling to campus by subway or bus, Google Maps is a helpful tool to view locations of stops (and lines serviced by the stop).
