Parking Options:

The Washington Avenue ramp (located between Harvard and Union Streets on the East Bank) is the closest ramp to the library. This ramp has tunnel-level access to the health sciences complex, and it is easy to find the library from this location. This is an hourly ramp with an approximate rate of $11 for the meeting.

Other parking options include the Huron Boulevard Parking complex which is a daily lot with a rate of $3.25. A map of this option is available at: <http://www1.umn.edu/pts/maps/ebdaily.htm>http://www1.umn.edu/pts/maps/ebdaily.htm

Directions to the 5th floor of Diehl Hall:
Both the AHC Learning Commons and room 555 are located on the 5th floor of Diehl Hall. The Bio-Medical Library occupies floors 2-4 of Diehl Hall as well. If you have parked in the Washington Avenue ramp, you may take the tunnel to Moos Tower, and from there follow the signs to the Bio-Medical Library. Before you enter the library at the tunnel level (2nd floor), there is an elevator and a stairway directly to your right. You may take either of these to the 5th floor of Diehl Hall. From there, follow the signs to the AHC Learning Commons and/or room
