  • Go straight past the security office (right) and recycling center (left)

  • Shortly after that you will reach a 1 way street going to the left after a small courtyard, follow that street.

  • It will curve around to the right, follow it almost to the end.


  • Bikes - there is a bike rack at the end of the street to lock your bike up

    Cars - the parking lot is the last right before the street ends at the bike rack
