Directions to the Conference

Humanities 1 Building

Humanities 1 Building

The Cosmopolitanism in China, 1600-1950 conference will be located in the Humanities 1 Building. Humanities 1 is part of the Humanities and Social Sciences Complex which is located at the entrance to Cowell College, on the corner of Hagar Drive and McLaughlin Drive.

The Humanities and Social Sciences Facility is located just north of Cowell College, in the northeast corner of the campus core. Those walking or arriving by Metro bus or campus shuttle should disembark at the Crown/Merrill bus stop.

For those driving from the Main Entrance, stay on Coolidge Drive. Shortly after Coolidge turns left and becomes McLaughlin Drive, turn left at the second opportunity, following the sign for Cowell College. The Humanities and Social Sciences facility is the first group of buildings on your right.

There are several options for visitor parking. The first small lot on the left is not available for visitor parking. You may park in the second lot on the left. If it is full, you can also continue on the service road as it goes down a hill to several larger parking lots.

Those needing accessible parking spaces have several options. There are two accessible spaces located in front of the Humanities and Social Sciences Facility, one space in the Cowell Circle, and several “medical” spaces reserved in the first small lot mentioned above. (“Medical” spaces are reserved for those with disabilities, but who don’t need the additional width of standard accessible parking spaces.)
