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.
