The 2017 Appalachian Student Research Forum will be held either in the 3rd floor of the D. P. Culp University Center on the campus of East Tennessee State University, or in the Millennium Centre located across the street from ETSU.
The Culp Center is located on the campus of ETSU, the large, concrete building on the south side of campus, next to the Sherrod Library. View an interactive map of the campus. The Millennium Centre is located across State of Franklin Road where the pedestrian bridge (see picture below) crosses over the road, near the Carnegie Hotel.
We recommend that you park in the new ETSU parking garage, located on the north and west end of campus, and take the campus shuttle to the Culp Center. Contact us if you will need a guest parking permit for that day.
