Directions for off campus visitors
Parking for visitors to The Barn is most convenient in Visitor Parking (VP) Lots 40, 47 or the West Parking Structure.
Exit Interstate 80 to follow Hwy 113 north toward Woodland. Take Hutchison Drive exit and turn right on Hutchison Drive (east bound).
West Parking Structure and VP 40: From east bound Hutchison Drive, continue straight past the LaRue stoplight to the West Parking Structure stoplight. Turn left at the light to enter the parking structure. Alternatively, continue straight through the light and at the first stop sign turn right into parking lot 41 and drive to the west end of the parking lot to Visitor Parking Lot 40.
VP 47: From east bound Hutchison Drive, turn right at the first stoplight onto La Rue Road. Follow La Rue Road south and around the bend toward the east. Turn left into Visitor Parking Lot 47.
Short term parking (metered parking, 45 minutes or less) is available on Bioletti Way and in Parking Lot 43. On Hutchison Drive, pass straight through the stoplight at the West Parking Structure/Dairy Road and the stop sign at Kleiber Hall Drive/Parking Lot 41. Turn right at the second stop sign onto Bioletti Way — metered spaces are on both sides of the road. Alternatively, proceed straight through the stop sign at Bioletti, and turn right into the second driveway, Parking Lot 41, just past the Surge IV building, before the Silo.
