Upon entry to the garage, turn right at the bottom of the entrance ramp. You will be on the P-3 level, and accessible spaces will be immediately on your right. To exit the garage, take the elevator on the near side of the garage up to level 1.  Turn right at the campus map and take another immediate right onto the sidewalk. Continue straight to the intersection at Library Walk (O’Donovan Dining Hall will be on your right) and cross the street diagonally to the left (following the lines in the crosswalk). You will see a sign at Village C for the Department of Public Safety on your right. Take the first entrance, underneath the stairwell beneath the giant concrete arch. From this lobby with vending machines on the right, take the elevator up to level 3 and continue on the ramp straight ahead. At the end of the path, bear right diagonally to where the ramp meets the pavement. Turn left onto the road and follow the road through the tunnel.

After emerging from the tunnel, follow the road to the right. Past the bushes to your left, you will see Davis Performing Arts Center. Take the ramp to the left directly after the row of bushes and before the stone “Davis Center” sign.  Once up the ramp, there will be two glass-paned doors to your left. The accessible door will be the second door from the ramp.

Past the steps that lead to the Davis Performing Arts Center doors and just past the stone “Davis Center” sign will be a ramp that leads up to the doors.

Take the ramp up towards the doors.  Once up the ramp, there will be two glass-paned doors to your left. The accessible door will be the second door from the ramp.
