Donna Wright Conference Info

Getting to the University of Utah College of Nursing

We highly recommend using public transportation to get to the Donna Wright conference! If you take Front Runner to Central Point, the U runs a white campus shuttle called "Express to the U" every half hour from 0630 to 0830 that will take you up to the College of Nursing. If you catch it at 0730, you will get there in time for the 0800 start. 

If you want to take Trax, the Red line will get you across the street from Primary Children's:

If you need to drive, please carpool!!!

The top map will get you to the Health Science parking terrace which has visitor parking on the first and second level, at the corner of South Medical Dr and 2030 East. The bottom map will get you to the College of Nursing, 10 South 2000 East. Getting to campus by car will take you twice as long as it normally does because school is in session. Expect delays.
