Coming by car is probably preferable:
1) Take the NJ Turnpike south to Exit 9.  After the tollbooth, stay right
onto Route 18 North.
2) Get immediately into the two left lanes of Route 18; these two lanes
will cross over Route 1 (the two right lanes exit onto Route 1 North).
3) After crossing Route 1, go through one traffic light.  There will be
lots of construction around it.
4) About 1/2 mile past the traffic light there will be an exit ramp on the
right marked "George Street."  Take that exit.
5) The ramp swings up to the left over Route 18, and the very first 
building on the right is the Marryott Music Building.  There will be a
traffic light soon after the end of the ramp. Do NOT go through that 
6) At the light you can turn right and then enter a parking lot 
immediately to the left.  Or you can turn left at the light (using the
jughandle from the right lane) and park in the lot on the opposite side of
the street.

If you come by train from NYC, you'll exit NJ Transit at New Brunswick.
Walk to the left one block as you exit the train station and you'll reach
George Street, the main street of downtown New Brunswick. Turn left at the
corner and walk one block to the corner of George and Somerset Streets.
There you will see a bus stop for the University Bus system, which is
free.  Wait for a bus that is going to the Cook/Douglass campus (EE, E, or
F).  Take the bus to the stop at the Douglass Student Center; the driver
will alert you.  The bus goes up George St. and the stop is on Nichol Ave,
just around a corner from George St.  Walk from the bus stop back towards
George St., cross the street, and keep walking straight to the chapel,
which you will see from the bus stop.  At the chapel, continue walking
diagonally to the right.  The sidewalk will take you to a footbridge
across a small ravine, and the arts complex is at the other end of the
footbridge. Ask anyone you see at that point to direct you to the Marryott
Music Building.

You can also take a taxi from the train station. There is a taxi stand 
right next to the train station.  Ask the driver to take you to the 
Nicholas Music Center on the Douglass campus if he doesn't know the 
Marryott Music Building itself.  The Music Center is right next to the 
Music Building.

We look forward to seeing you on January 20.

Best Wishes,
