Upon entering the Central Plaza Garage
When stopping at the gatehouse for parking payment, identify yourself as a guest at the ARCS Physics visit. You will be directed to a specific area to park with the easy access to the Physics Astronomy Auditorium Building.
Exit garage through doors labeled “Henry Art Gallery” by way of stairs or elevator. Please note that there aren’t any signs labeled “Physics Astronomy Auditorium Building.”
Once you are outside at the Henry Art Gallery head south down a little slope (at the bottom you will see another gatehouse).
Continue south by crossing the street onto Stevens Way NE for about 2.5 blocks until reaching the Physics Astronomy Auditorium Building (passing landmarks Architecture Hall and Guthrie Hall). The Physics Astronomy Auditorium Building will be to your right.
After turning right and walking up a few steps, you will be in a courtyard with a large outdoor sculpture shaped like a bowling pin. Of the two buildings located in the courtyard, the Physics Astronomy Auditorium Building is located directly south of the sculpture (to your left).
