General Information

Early Arrivals - If you are arriving on campus the day before your CWE session starts, go directly to the Village Parking Lot (Upper Left corner of the Map). If you are arriving the day your session starts (Monday or Thursday), please see the directions below.

Directions on Campus - Please view the directions below. There will be signs on campus directing you to the correct parking area. Upon arrival, all students will obtain CWE housing information, and will then be directed to their next step. CWE staff will assist with the student's luggage and will direct the student and parents through check-in. Above all, we ask for your patience and understanding as we deal with high volumes of traffic in a limited window of time.
