Directions to HPNP Auditorium
The HPNP (Health Professions, Nursing & Pharmacy) Auditorium is at the University of Florida Medical Center at the HPNP Building. If you enter the front (main entrance) to the building you walk up the stairs to the auditorium.
The HPNP Building (shown in red) is just north of the UF Medical Center/Shands Hospital on Center Drive.
Directions from I-75:
From NORTH of Gainesville take I-75 SOUTH get off at exit 384 (Archer Rd / SR 24). As you exit I-75 you will turn left (East) onto Archer Rd.
From SOUTH of Gainesville take I-75 NORTH get off at exit 384 (Archer Rd / SR 24). As you exit I-75 you will turn right (East) onto Archer Rd.
Go several miles east on Archer Road and look for the stop light at Center Drive, where you will turn left to get to the HPNP Building. As you approach Center Drive on Archer Road, you will pass Gale Lemerand Drive and will then see the VA Hospital on your right, and a huge red brick building (The UF Medical Center / Shands Hospital) on your left.
Parking: Looking at the map above, you can park at Garage2, Garage3 or Garage10 (this on is farthest from the HPNP). It costs $3 if you park as a guest in either of the garages between the hours of 8am-5pm but the attendant does not collect any fee after 5pm.
There is also very limited free parking along the Center Drive after 5pm.
