Getting Here/Arrival

If you are arriving by car, we recommend you use Google Maps for accurate directions to campus. 

If you are arriving by plane, train, or bus, you must arrange your own transportation to campus. We recommend Champagne Limousines, which serves Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, the St. Louis bus terminal, and the Amtrak College Avenue train station in Alton, Illinois.
