For parking:

(1)  To Campus Center Parking garage. From Route 9, take route 116 north 1 mile to UMass exit. Right at the top of the exit ramp, proceed east towards campus and follow signs to Campus Center Parking garage.

(2) Free parking near Math Lounge on the weekends. Start as if going to the Campus Center Parking garage (see (1) above), but keep going north around the “back” (west) side of the campus, and try to find your way into the maze of parking areas numbered “65”. The lots near Paige Lab and Knowles are good. All normal parking lots are free on the weekend, but the Campus Parking Center garage isn’t.

The Lederle Graduate Research Tower (LGRT), where the Math Lounge is located, is a 16-story building a little bit further away (than either the library or the Campus Center). For an enlarged view of the LGRT on the interactive map, click here.

The Math Lounge (LGRT): The Math Lounge (Rm # 1634) is located on the 16th floor of the Lederle Graduate Research Tower. Please allow extra time for the long elevator ride. As you step off the elevator on the 16th floor, you will see right in front of you a sign pointing to your right (unless you choose to step off by walking backwards) saying “Room 1634”.
