The University of Louisville Belknap campus is on the southern edge of Old Louisville, an historic neighborhood featuring Victorian-era homes, located between the airport (approximately three miles to the south) and downtown Louisville (two miles north by the river). Louisville's Standiford International Airport has many direct flights across the country. For those travelling by car, Louisville is reached by I-65 from the north and south, I-71 from the north, and I-64 from east and west.
Directions to the University of Louisville School of Music
The University of Louisville is situated immediately west of I-65; those coming from the north should take the Arthur Street Exit (#134), and those approaching from the south should use the second/westbound Eastern Parkway Exit (#133-B). The School of Music is located at the corner of 2nd Street and Cardinal Boulevard. If you approach from the north, take the Arthur Street exit. Stay on the access road until you reach a stop sign. Turn right at the stop sign onto Cardinal Boulevard. Go through two traffic lights, and turn left into the North Entrance of the campus. The Music Building is on your right as you drive onto campus. If you approach from the south, take the second Eastern Parkway Exit (Westbound). You will make right corners around a large block until you are westbound on Eastern Parkway. Go over the bridge and past the Speed Scientific School on your left; turn right onto 3rd St. This street divides and your direction becomes 2nd St. after the Confederate statue. Turn right on Cardinal Boulevard, and then turn right into the North Entrance of the campus. The Music Building is on your right as you drive onto campus.
