From Varsity Dr, turn into the road that leads to the parking decks behind the WebAssign building. Park in the parking deck marked by the X and walk up the stairs to the back entrance as indicated. Someone will open the door for you. There is an entrance facing Main Campus Dr, but we may not have someone at that door, so please park in the parking deck in the back.
