We meet at St. George’s Episcopal Church, 4301 N. IH-35, Austin, Texas. The church is on the northbound access road of IH-35, just south of Airport Boulevard. We meet in Kleberg Hall on the south side of the church, off of Ardenwood.
From South IH-35: Take the 38th Street exit on the lower deck of IH-35. Go north on the northbound access road; stay right. After you cross the railroad tracks, turn right on Ardenwood. If you miss the turn onto Ardenwood, turn right onto Airport Boulevard, then take your first right into Parkwood. The street will dead end into Ardenwood. Turn right onto Ardenwood and Kleberg Hall will be on the right just before you get to the frontage road.
From North IH-35: Take the Airport/38th Street exit. Stay on the southbound frontage road. Make a U-turn at the first opportunity (before the traffic light) to get on the northbound frontage road. Immediately get over to your right and make a right on Ardenwood. If you miss the turn onto Ardenwood, turn right onto Airport Boulevard, then take your first right into Parkwood. The street will dead end into Ardenwood. Turn right onto Ardenwood and Kleberg Hall will be on the right just before you get to the frontage road.
