  • Interstate-8 to the College Avenue exit. The College exit is just east of Interstate-15.
  • Travel south off the exit (if you are traveling on I-8 East from west of the University you will turn right onto College Ave.; if you are traveling on I-8 West from east of the University, you will turn left onto College Ave.).
  • Travel south on College Ave. through one light, turn right on Canyon Crest Drive at the second light. You will then pass the Chemical Sciences Laboratory building located on your left. The route is indicated by the red dashed line on the printable map.

Directions to the College of Engineering building:

Once on Canyon Crest Drive continue straight, then curve to your left and continue up the steep hill. At the 3-way stop at the top of the hill (Charles Hostler Hall will be in front of you), turn left (this will be Aztec Circle Drive). At the next stop sign (Donald P. Shiley building will be in front of you), bear to the left to stay on Aztec Circle Drive. Go straight through the next stop sign, and then curve to the right. As you curve to the right, you will see covered parking on your right which is the back of the Engineering Building. 

Park behind the Engineering building in a designated SP 103 space. Please do not park in a handicapped space or the space designated for the Dean. Enter the Engineering building at the entrance visible at the far end of the parking area and take the elevator to the 2nd floor.  

If you were not issued parking permits in advance, please obtain them from the Dean’s Office (2nd floor, room 203), or from your University contact. Be sure to display your parking permits on the inside driver's side dashboard.
