Parking

We have reserved special permit parking spaces zoned “Q” for families in our studies. You should have received a temporary parking permit valid in the Q-spaces only, located at the corner of Palm Dr. and Roth Way.

From Palm Drive: Turn right onto ROTH WAY toward the museum (just before you get to the OVAL). The 4 Q-spaces are on the left hand side. The Q-spaces are highlighted on your map.

• If all the Q-spaces are taken, please park in a spot to the right of the Q-spaces, and put the parking permit on the dashboard so it is clearly visible.

IMPORTANT: Please place the permit on your dashboard, facing up with the date of your appointment clearly marked in ink.

• After parking your car, walk up the Oval towards the Main Quad. Cross over Serra Street (careful for bikers!). If you bring a stroller, there is a ramp next to the center stairs toward the Main Quad, near our building. Continue along the covered walkway away from the Main Quad. The Center for Infant Studies is located in MARGARET JACKS HALL, in Building 460.

• When you enter Margaret Jacks Hall, take the elevator or stairs down to the lower level, turn left as you exit, and ring the doorbell at the Center for Infant Studies. A research assistant will be there to greet you.

Please feel free to give us a call if you are having trouble finding us or if you need some help. Our phone number is 650-723-1257. One of our friendly research assistants would be happy to meet you at the Q-spots and give you a hand!
