There are several parking options near the classroom. Each varies in its proximity to the classroom and number of spaces (and probability of finding an open spot). The availability of these parking spaces is also affected by the schedule of special Stanford events.

The nearest street parking is along Santa Teresa Street either near the Stanford Humanities Center or adjacent to Roble Field. There is also street parking along Roble Drive and there is a parking lot across from the Roble Gym.

There are a large number of parking spaces available in the PS-2 multi-story parking structure on the corner of Panama Street and Via Ortega as well as the parking lot adjacent to Tresidder Union. This map shows their relationship to the classroom.

Building and Classroom Access

The outdoor central "breezeway" is accessible from Santa Teresa Street or from the area adjacent to the Terman Fountain (as pictured above). An accessible ramp is located on the north side of the building (facing the Terman Fountain). The double-door entrance to Classroom 110 is to the "west", beyond the restrooms and elevator. These doors lead directly to the rear of the classroom. Access to the front of the classroom is through a second door near the accessible ramp. The classroom can accommodate wheelchair users in the back of the room.

Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are centrally located just outside the main entrance to the classroom.

The newly constructed Terman Fountain is directly across from the Thornton Center and Tresidder Union is located just down Santa Teresa Street.

On-campus Access

The closest Marguerite Shuttle stops are in front of the Mian Quad (Lines C and V) and near the Roble Gym (Lines X and Y). All Marguerite shuttles are wheelchair-accessible. Call 650/723-9362 for information or download Marguerite schedules and routes.

The Office of Accessible Education operates a free Disability Golf Cart Service, DisGo, for all members of the Stanford community. It is open to anyone with a disability or medical condition that makes it difficult to travel about campus. DisGo currently maintains two 4-seat golf carts and one wheelchair accessible cart.
