We are located on the campus of the University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware, behind Penney Hall on Academy Street. Visitor parking is available in the Perkins Parking Garage, three doors south of our location on Academy Street.

Driving Instructions: From I-95, exit on 896 North. Drive several miles straight on this road (do not turn left at the Rt. 4 intersection, pass straight through, crossing over the Amtrack railroad bridge and under the pedestrian cross-walk). The next intersection is Delaware Avenue, where there is a light (this is the 2nd to the last light before the road deadends).

Take a right turn and then the next right turn (at light) onto Academy Street. You will then be heading back to the south. Pass thru the four-way stop intersection at Lovett and take the next left into Lot 57. This lot is gated and you must take a ticket (bring it with you).

Our building is located behind the Delaware Geological Survey building, the large brick building with the black windows. You can walk right through the Geological Survey building and see our building to your left. It is a composite steel and brick two-story structure.

Site maps of the University of Delaware are available here on the Internet and in .gif and .pdf format. Additional directions and maps are available from the College of Engineering site. We are on central campus, south of Lot 57.
