Get driving directions and then use a campus map to find Ryon Engineering Lab and parking information. The closest paid visitor parking is the North Lot Annex (location of Campus Observatory) at entrance 20. Free parking is available in the Greenbriar Lot, though this is a 15 minute walk. For short visits, you can park on the Inner Loop with your flashers on for up to 15 minutes (note that RUPD strictly enforces this policy - for more information refer to the Traffic and Parking Regulations)
