|Winthrop University supports
geocaching on campus-owned properties. However, there
are many sensitive areas around Winthrop (public art
installations, wetlands, sports fields, etc.) that could
be harmed, even inadvertently, by geocachers. In order
to balance the need for protection of these areas with
the interests of geocachers, guidelines have been
established. See the Geocaching Policy page for details.

125th Anniversary Geocaching History Exam.
Considerations when geocaching on Winthrop Campus:
- Please pay attention to all parking regulations.
- Due to
the volume of students, faculty and staff during
weekdays, it is recommended that you visit during the
evenings or on weekends.
- There may be times when events (such as graduation at
the coliseum) prevent you from being able to get to or
park near some geocaches. Please be respectful of those
events and the attendees.
