From Thruway Exit 48: City Route

Turn left on Route 98 (Oak Street) and proceed to the first traffic light.  Turn left onto Richmond Avenue and proceed to Bank Street.  Take another left onto Bank Street and continue past the City line to College Road.  Turn right onto College Road and proceed for a mile or so until you see the College on your left.  This route will take you past the New York State School for the Blind and Dwyer Stadium.  It is slightly slower than the country route but will give you the opportunity to see a portion of the city.

From Thruway Exit 48: Country Route

Turn right on Route 98 and proceed over the Thruway to the first right turn.  This is West Saile Drive.  Take this right turn and proceed past the airport until the road ends at the Batavia Turf Farms.  Take another right onto Bank Street, cross the Thruway again and turn left onto College Road.  Proceed for a mile or so until you see the College on your left.

From Rochester

If you do not wish to take the Thruway you can drive west on Route 490 until you reach the "Bergen and Batavia" Exit.  Leave Route 490 at this point and take Route 33 west to Batavia.  Turn right onto Batavia-Stafford Townline Road and then left onto College Road.  Proceed for a mile or so until you see the College on your right. 

From Other Locations

The College is located about three miles northeast of Batavia.  If you proceed from Batavia toward Rochester on Route 33 you will see the College on your left.  Turn left on Batavia-Stafford Townline Road and take the first left onto College Road.  If you cross under the Thruway you've gone too far!

Main Street in Batavia is Route 5.  Routes 33 and 63 also join Main Street in the city.  If you can locate the Genesee Country Mall in downtown Batavia you will find that the street directly east of the Mall is Bank Street.  Take Bank Street north and follow the "City Route" directions above.
