|Bowling Green State University is located in Bowling Green, Ohio. It is a two and a half hour drive from Cleveland, about one and a half hours south of Detroit and three hours north of Cincinnati.|
|Interstate 75 borders the eastern edge of the campus; the University is located at Exit 181. U.S. Route 6 bypasses the south side of the city. Interstates 80 and 90 (the Ohio Turnpike) are only twenty minutes to the north; turnpike exit 64 provides the most direct route to the campus. Toledo Express Airport is about a forty-five minute drive northwest from campus.|
When you arrive in Bowling Green, we suggest that you stop first at the Visitor Information Center on campus. As you exit!-75, turn west onto Wooster Street entering the city of Bowling Green. Turn right at the traffic light, onto Alumni Drive. You will see the Visitor Information Center straight ahead located just south of the football stadium. The staff there will provide parking information and if needed the shuttle bus service to central campus.
