Location Information


The observatory is located on UST's St. Paul Campus on top of the Anderson Parking Facility. All public viewing and observatory tours will take place in the observatory. If an event begins with a talk, this portion will be held in OWS (Owens Science Hall) in the 3M Auditorium, room 150. You can find more information on parking and driving directions on the St. Thomas Campus Maps site.

The UST Observatory is located on the very top floor of the Anderson Parking Facility. To reach the parking facility, turn into South Campus onto Grand, off of Cretin Ave. The Anderson Parking Facility is the first building on the left. The Observatory is on the fourth floor. Be sure to take care if parking in the facility that in order to reduce interference with observing, the lights on the fourth floor of the parking ramp are turned off during outreach events.


Both the 3M Auditorium in OWS and the Anderson Parking Facility are wheelchair-accessible, as is the observatory. The entrance to the observatory can be accessed by a wheelchair ramp which leads directly into the observatory control room.
