Once you arrive on the campus - the bus crosses the campus gate and you get off at the first stop. There are signs to ATS Village II. Then go uphill (there is a steeper direct path or a wider winding road) - first you will see building #167 (Palm Springs Dormitory) - just go inside and go uphill to number 163, apartment 3 (or use the winding road around it). Asking for Senate Dorms may not give the results expected (tested in the field).
