Room 245
Auraria Library (second floor)

Here are directions for walking from the Convention Center to Auraria Library:

The campus is just west of the Convention Center, across Speer Boulevard (and Cherry Creek). There are a number of streets that cross Speer Boulevard and go over the Creek.

From the Convention Center, walk west on Champa , crossing Speer and over Cherry Creek. As soon as you cross Speer, turn slightly to the right into the central part of campus. You will see a church, St. Elizabeth. The church is on St. Francis Way (11th Street on Google Maps) and is a distinctive landmark. There are parking lots and a parking station that is usually staffed. The library is next to the church. It is a two story white building. Walk past the front of the church toward the library, you will be approaching the back of the library. Turn left after the church to get to the front of the library.

This is an easy walk or one could take the light rail.
