If you are just being dropped off or parking for a short time, the best place to park is the East parking lot on the east side of campus near the Cornerstone Building. From the East lot, you will have to walk west through the Applied Sciences Building, down a few steps into the Academic Quadrangle (AQ), continue west past the lecture halls and then turn left at the Chemistry building. There will be signs posted if you go this way. Here is a map of the SFU parking lots: Parking Map
