The easiest way to get to the facility is by taking the elevator on the 1/F down to the basement. If you're facing the Foucault pendulum in the lobby, the elevator is on your right, beyond the spirlal staircase and behind the doors. On exiting the elevator, turn left and go though the door (labelled Biology), our labs are down the hallway. The coordinator's office is A087 which is on the right at the end of the hallway.

In addition, you can take the spiral staircase to the mezzanie and then take Stair 7 down to the basement. You will be outside B059. At the end of the hallway where yellow meets orange is where you can cross over to the Biology sector. You can also take the elevators (or stairs) in the Physics-Astronomy Building and Tower. Please see the floor plans below.

Facility users can use the access doors facing the Burke Gilman trail (key required). This is marked by an orange marker in the customized Google map.


The main entrance on Stevens Way will take you to level 1. The entrance off the Burke Gilman Trail is at leve B1. Our labs are located on level B2.
