Buses, Parking and Maps
For those travelling by bus, remain on the bus until the final bus loop (near Cornerstone building). This is the closest stop to the Science building where the Trottier Studio is located.
Short term (paid) parking is available in front of the Cornerstone Building. For those looking for just a place to quickly drop-off and pick-up participants there is space at the western edge of the East Parking lot (one level down from Cornerstone parking). See the link to the interactive campus map on the left.
