The Graduate and Professional School Fair will be held in the Gray Athletic Building (#23 on the campus map). To get there from the parking lot head to the left side of Merrill Gym and you’ll see a walk way, cross the street, take a left, and head straight to the Gray Athletic Building.  There will be signs directing you from the parking lot to Gray Athletic Building.  It is a five minute walk from the parking lot to the Gray Athletic Building.

Take a right out of the parking lot or off of Central Ave onto Russell Street.  Continue straight through the stoplight onto Farwell Street and follow .6 miles to stoplight. Take a left onto Webster Street and follow about 1 mile to the stoplight. Take a right onto Plourde Parkway and continue to the stoplight. Take a right onto Pleasant Street. Continue on Pleasant Street to the stop light. Take a right onto route 196. Take route 196 to Topsham, going past the Topsham Fair Mall to the intersection of Route 201.  Take a right at the light (heading south) onto Route 201, following signs to Maine Street in Brunswick.  You will cross a bridge and proceed on Maine street to the campus (less than a mile).  After you cross the railroad tracks, you will head up hill and bear left at the white church onto Bath Road.  At the traffic light, turn right onto Sills Drive (Route 123).  There are two parking options:

  1. Take the second entrance on your right into the Polar Loop Parking Lot. If you park in the back left corner you will be closest to Smith Union. Signs will be pointing in the direction of the entrance. Space is this lot is limited – follow the directions below for additional parking.
  2. Continue down Sills Drive/Harpswell Road to the Farley Field House (85 Harpswell Road).  Turn right into the parking lot.  Vans will be available to escort you to and from the Graduate and Professional School Fair in Smith Union. If you pass the Maine Pines Tennis Club on the right hand side you have gone too far.

Because the Polar Loop Lot has very limited parking, it’s recommended that you park in the Farley Lot and take a shuttle to Smith Union. Two shuttle vans provide transportation between the Farley Field House lot at 85 Harpswell Road and David Saul Smith Union. The vans will be available from 2:30 until 6:00 pm.
