By Car
The University of Arkansas campus is accessed from Interstate 49 at three major exits: 60 (Razorback Road), 62 (Martin Luther King Blvd.) and 63 (Wedington Road). Teams and fans coming to our competition sports venues will be best served by Exit 62 for all but baseball and indoor track, where exit 61 may be easier for bus access.
