FAU’s Historic Building T6 is an old 1940s army barracks building located on FAU's Boca Raton campus, at the northeast corner, very close to Henderson School and the FAU Football Stadium and directly across the street from the east entrance of Palm Beach State College. For the Wayzgoose, look for the big tent pitched between T6 and neighboring Building T5. We will have directional road signs placed strategically on main campus roads directing you to the place, along with free, close-by parking.

From Glades Road: Enter the FAU campus at the main entrance (the one closest to I-95) and you will find yourself on West University Drive. Continue straight. The road will curve eventually and become North University Drive and the Football Stadium will soon be in view. There will be a traffic light just past the stadium. Continue straight, and make a left turn at the stop sign, onto NW 8th Avenue. On your right, across from the entrance to Palm Beach State College, is T6, a long single-story building with a tall brick chimney. This is the place! T5 is the next building, and then comes a parking lot, which is where you should park.

From Spanish River Boulevard: Enter the FAU Campus at the traffic light at FAU Boulevard. Before the road makes a big curve off to the west, you will make a left turn onto NW 8th Avenue. Palm Beach State College will be on your right, and on your left, you will soon see two long single-story buildings with tall brick chimneys. These are Buildings T5 and T6, and you’ll see the big tent between them. Park in the parking lot just north of T5.
