From the UGA Health Sciences Campus Bus Route:

Once you get off the Health Sciences bus, you will go around Brown Hall. Next, you’ll cross Foster Road and be in the parking lot for Pound Hall. Toward the opposite end of this long parking lot, you’ll see a sidewalk and want to follow that down the hill. You can also just follow the curving Kenny Road if you want. Just make sure to turn left down the indicated road. It will bring you right to our front door. There’s a sign out front with our name on it.
