Poole College is located in Nelson Hall, on the west end of North Carolina State University’s central campus, about 12 miles from Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The main entrance to Nelson Hall faces Hillsborough Street, between Dan Allen Drive and Brooks Avenue.

NOTE: Dan Allen Drive is restricted to transit vehicles, university vehicles with (SV) or (UV) permits and emergency vehicles, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. There will be no public access to this north-south road during these hours. The access gates will be open at all other times, including nights and weekends.

Those planning to park in the Dan Allen Parking Deck can reach it by turning on Dan Allen Drive from Hillsborough Street, then turning right onto Yarboro Extension, and then taking the first entrance to the parking deck. The Dan Allen Parking Deck also is accessible via Dixie Trail, which is Friendly Drive on the campus side of Hillsborough Street. Read more about campus visitor parking at NC State University.

Ground level access to Nelson Hall is available at campus side of the building, below the exterior stairs. An elevator is available just beyond that entrance.
