Location

We’re located about 5 minutes away from the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, Missouri. Our facility is located on Epple Field near the intersection of Providence Rd. and Mick Deaver Dr. We’re next to the Green Tennis Center. Other landmarks include the Reactor, the Reactor Lot (RP10), Reactor Field, and the MU Research Commons. Our address is 2003 S Providence Rd, Columbia, MO 65203, but it does not always show up correctly on a GPS. For that reason, we suggest you use the maps and directions below.

Parking

We share our parking lot with the Green Tennis Center. Spaces with green painted curbs are for Tennis Center patrons ONLY. Do not park in the green spaces or you may be towed. Venture Out’s spaces have unpainted curbs.

Bus or Bike from Campus

Venture Out is accessible by bus via the free MU Tiger Line “Reactor Loop” bus route (403), which runs every 10 minutes Monday-Friday from 5am-11pm. The bus picks up in front of the Reynolds Alumni Center at the intersection of Conley Ave and Tiger Ave. The bus drops off at the Reactor Parking Lot (RP10), which is a 5 minute walk from our gates.

Venture Out is also accessible by bike via the MKT and MU Rec trails (20 minute flat, shaded bike ride from campus). Bikes can be rented from the MU Student Center.
