Directions to E.A. Diddle Arena

From I-65 North (heading south):

Take the first Bowling Green exit (exit 28) at the Corvette Plant and Corvette Museum onto the connector road that will take you to US 31-W. Follow the signs for US 31-W South -- Bowling Green. Stay on the four-lane US 31-W South (Louisville Road) to the stop light at the bridge over Barren River. 31-W turns left at that stoplight; however, you want to continue straight through the light on Louisville Road which will split into two one-way streets at Sixth Ave. The one-way SW is Adams Street. When the one-way streets merge into the four-lane University Blvd., you will be on the NW corner of the Western Kentucky University campus (railroad on right, WKU on left). Go straight through the first stoplight (at Old Morgantown Road/Dogwood Drive) and the University Parking Structure will be the first building on your left, followed immediately by the back side of E.A.
