Building 305 is the library building near the center of campus. Check the map for the nearest parking. If you come to campus by taxi, let the driver know that you would like to go to the main bus circle in the center of campus. Building 305 is just up the hill from the bus drop area.

To access Room 507, you will need to come into the main entrance of the library (on the 3rd level) and take the stairs to the 5th level. Room 507 will be facing you when you enter onto the 5th floor.

For elevator access you will need to be accompanied by someone with a security card. If you need to use the elevator, please let us know in advance, and we will meet you on the lower level to accompany you to the 5th floor.
