While the address for the Scobee Education Center is also the address from San Antonio College, our center is best accessed from the west side of campus and not 1819 N. Main Ave.  Some guests have found that the "old" address of 28 West Park Avenue, 78212 will bring their GPS unit to the Nail Technical Building adjacent to our facility on the SAC Campus.  Look for the blue "Charlie Cheever Star Tower" before parking when you arrive.

On the west San Pedro Ave. side of campus, you turn east into the campus on W. Park Ave.  The large blue Cheever Star Tower will be visible on your left.  This structural icon is at the corner of the Scobee Education Center and our "front door" is located on the terrace closest to this tower.

From W. Park Ave., Lot 21 is on your left hand side and Lot 29 is on your right hand side.  Both are free, open parking areas.   Do not park in Lots 20 or 22 as these are reserved at all times for the staff and faculty and vehicles may be ticketed.
