Proceed about 2/10 of a mile. Adjacent to the Student Center is a small visitor lot, which fills up quickly. Recommended: proceed several hundred feet and turn right just beyond a parking garage. Look for the sign for Visitor parking (nearby are a Faculty lot and student parking).

If you miss Cherry St., turn right a few feet ahead onto Tech Parkway (Hampton Inn is at this intersection). Turn right at first stoplight to enter campus on Ferst Dr. ; make an immediate right.  Within a few yards is an option to turn left - this is for Area 3 parking (recommended). Or, go further - just beyond a student parking garage is a small lot (Area 2), adjacent to the Student Center.

Additional campus entrances are on 5th St. (parallel to North Ave.) ; Tech Parkway ; from 10th St. - Hemphill Ave., State St., and Fowler St. ; and from North Ave., Techwood Dr.

After parking: enter the Student Center (veer left for the elevator) and go down one level to the 1st floor and exit. Proceed along the "Tech Walk" (formerly Skiles Walkway).

Drop-off options :

 At the back of the Clough building - end of 4th street. Enter Clough on the 1st floor; head straight back to elevator bank. Library can be entered from the 4th floor of Clough. Useful if inclement weather.

Closest drop-off is just off of Bobby Dodd, almost at the top of the hill. As you drive up, you will have to turn right (an alley). At the fork, turn left to double-back to go out a second alley, which is the side of the Library.  Note: this is not flat; it is a hill.

Consider being dropped off (very quickly) at the corner of Cherry St. & Ferst Dr.; the library is straight ahead, about 200 yards away.
