Campus Map
The Science Center is located on the former intersection of Pleasant Street and Emerson Street, GPS coordinates 42.50472, -89.03125

Driving directions:
Take I-90 Exit 185A, Wisconsin 81, into Beloit. When you cross some railroad tracks, the road splits.
Option 1: Take the left fork (Milwaukee Road), signed for Beloit College. Take the third right (Emerson Street). The Science Center will be in front of you when the road ends.
Option 2: Stay on 81 to the right even though the left fork will be signed for Beloit College. Just before the river (third traffic light from the railroad tracks), turn left on Pleasant Street, US 51. The Science Center is the tall building on the left.
