Admission Visitors

Traveling to campus for an Admission visit? We can’t wait to see you! Find the appropriate set of directions to campus below, depending on your hometown.

North Split Closure

The Indiana Department of Transportation will close the North Split interchange of I-65/70 the weekend of May 14, 2021. This project is expected to last 18 months and results in the significant rerouting of traffic for Indianapolis commuters and those visiting Butler’s campus. Please consult GPS apps such as Waze or Google Maps to determine the best route for your visit to Butler.
