Directions to MTA Campus

Travelling from Quebec, NB or from Moncton airport (taxi drivers know how to get to Sackville and some will know exactly where you are going because they take students to campus from the airport):
- your destination is HARPER HALL, Mount Allison Campus

- turn right off the exit ramp - this is Main St
- travel about 1 km along Main St, on your right you will see a Quik Mart and a strip mall
- immediately in front of you is a "Y" or "fork" in the road - this is the
MTA campus
- stay to the left at this fork in the road
- on your left you will see a very old stone building set back off the road,
this is called Palmer Hall
- Harper Hall is located BEHIND this building - you can pick up the keys to get into Harper Hall at the reception desk in WINDSOR HALL, which is located next to Harper (15 seconds to walk there)
- the building we are meeting in is called AVARD-DIXON, it is located just across the street from Palmer Hall, down Main St about 100 feet, at the crosswalk
- if you come upon a small duck pond with a large fountain in the middle,
you have gone too far
