Directions to McHenry Library

Campus Maps is changing in December 2018. ×

McHenry Library is located in the center of campus on Steinhart Road. 

By bus: Those arriving by Metro bus can either walk down Steinhart from the Cowell bus stop, or transfer to a campus shuttle at the Quarry Plaza, just across the street from that stop.

By car: From the west entrance of campus, turn right on Meyer Drive and follow the road around the Performing Arts parking lot. Follow the one-lane road to the bottom of the hill where you'll find metered parking, medical permit parking, and bike racks. From there, you can walk along the curved foot path up the hill to the library entrance.

Parking: Metered parking is available on the south side of the buiding. Metered parking in campus lots requires payment until 8:30 p.m. weekdays. There are two additional disabled parking spots next to the library entrance. Continue up the service road toward the library building and look for the two spots directly in front of the doors. The nearest permit parking lot is the Performing Arts lot. "A" permits are required for this lot seven days per week. One-day visitor permits may be purchased at the main entrance Kiosk, or at the TAPS Sales Office located in the H Barn at the base of campus. A pay station that dispenses $3 evening parking permits is located in the Performing Arts Lot.

Parking permits are required in most lots on weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. Lot designations are subject to change; it is advisable to check the permit requirements posted at parking lot entrances when parking on campus. Parking meters are posted regarding hours of enforcement.
