Directions to the Department Office

Directions from the Base of Campus (Main Entrance - intersection of High Street and Coolidge Drive)

Note: Parking permits are required on campus. Information on purchasing a guest parking permit can be found on the Transportation & Parking Services website. For evening and weekend parking, paystations can be found in Cowell/Stevenson Lot 107, Stevenson Lot 109, and Stevenson Lot 110

Proceed north on the main road, Coolidge Drive, as you drive around the eastern edge of campus. Coolidge then turns into McLaughlin Drive after a sharp curve to the left. Once you pass the "Welcome to Central Campus" sign, make the second left turn at the "Cowell College--Humanities Building" sign. Some parking will be ahead and to the left in the Cowell College upper lot; if no spots are available there, continue down the hill past Stevenson College to the two larger lots. You may park in any unmarked space in either of these lots with your guest parking permit. Please note: if you park in a metered spot, you must pay the meter fee regardless of whether you have a permit or not.

From the parking lot, walk up the hill toward the Humanities and Social Science buildings (there is a path on the far west side of the larger lot). The History Department is located on the ground floor of the larger Humanities building in room 201.
