Look for the Cru signs pointing the way to Ward Hall on registration day.

There is a map of the Rollins campus at (https://www.rollins.edu/visit-rollins/documents/rollins-college-campus-map.pdf).  The parking garage is #400, Ward Hall is #229, Bush Auditorium is in Building #100, and Dave’s Boathouse is in the basement of Building #325.

Driving directions can be found below. However, you will want to drive to Ward Hall for registration before parking (leave your luggage in your vehicle).  Turn south from Fairbanks Avenue onto New York Avenue, which is one block West of Park Avenue.  After crossing Holt Avenue, New York Avenue turns into French Avenue.  Continue on French Avenue, and then turn left onto the small road between Corrin Hall and Elizabeth Hall (approx. 777 French Ave, Winter Park, FL, 32789).  Go past the tennis courts and you will arrive at a turnaround. Ward Hall will be directly in front of you. Again, leave your luggage in your car.

PARKING:
You can park in the Rollins parking garage that is on the northwest corner of Fairbanks and Interlachen.  You will receive a parking pass at registration. After registering, you can drop your luggage off at your dorm. You will then need to proceed to the parking garage. Please park on the second level and above.

We ask that you do not park in the parking lot behind Ward Hall for the duration of the conference. These spots are reserved for Rollins’ Faculty and non-Cru guests.

Go east on the 408 (about 9 miles) until you reach I-4. Go east on I-4 (about 3 miles) and exit at Fairbanks Ave. (exit 87). Go east on Fairbanks Ave (about 2 miles) and to Park Ave. (Look for the 7-Eleven). Turn left (north) onto Park Ave., heading away from the main campus. Proceed north on Park Ave. for two blocks, and turn right onto Lyman Ave. The parking garage is halfway down the block on the right. Please park on the second level and above.

Arriving by plane:

Please make sure your flight arrives before 3 p.m. so that you will have plenty of time to get to Rollins for registration (3-6 p.m.) and the evening’s program (7 p.m.).

You can fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO) or Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB).

There are a number of shuttle services (including Mears Transportation) that offers taxis and shared van rides from the airport. You can coordinate shuttle rides on our Facebook page.

Arriving by Greyhound Bus:

The Greyhound bus station in Orlando is about 5 miles from Rollins College. A taxi from the bus station to Rollins College costs approximately $30.

Facebook Group
The “IBS & NSO Summer 2018” Facebook Group is an essential tool for connecting with other New Staff members (e.g. sharing rides to/from the airport, etc.). It will also be the main way the NST conference team shares announcements.

This Facebook Group is a “Secret Group” to maximize privacy, so you must be invited to join. Please write to join.us@cru.org from the e-mail address associated with your Facebook Account. (Please use your cru.org address for all ministry correspondence; however, in this case, we need to invite you within the Facebook platform.)

If you have any questions, please email us at join.us@cru.org
