Where to find us on campus

Our building faces the main plaza of campus where the Learning Center, Cultural Center, and Sproles Recreation Center are located. If you access the library from the accessibility (handicapped) parking or visitor's parking in Lot 1, you can enter the lower level of the library on the right side and locate the elevator within ITS (Information Technology Services) to come to the second floor of the building.

For visitor parking on campus, please visit the Campus Map & Directions which provides you with information about obtaining a visitor's parking permit and a map of the campus, including parking lots.
