If you prefer to park and bring your cores to the lab, drive to the north side of the Civil Engineering Building. Park at one of the meters (quarters only) and enter the hidden building door directly below the glass-topped tower. Take the elevator down to the 6th floor, where you'll find the lab (Rooms 662 to 672).
A loading dock with a phone is located on the east side of the Civil Engineering Building. It is often blocked inside and out by delivery vehicles and detritus, but may be a useful option. You'll find a campus phone just inside the door; dial 6-7889 to reach the lab.
From either Hennepin Ave SE or Como Ave SE, turn south onto 29th Ave SE. Approximately one block south of Como Ave SE, turn left onto Fairmount Ave SE; proceed through the chain link fence gate and turn left. The Repository and Equipment Garage are in the northernmost door of the building (marked with the LacCore sign).
Contact LacCore staff for instructions for long-term parking at the Repository.
