Getting to the conference room

If Driving

  • When you pull away from the S-1 gatehouse, turn right and then make an immediate left into the S-1 parking garage.
  • At this point you have an option to drive up (to the left) into the middle level of the garage or drive down (to the right) into the lower level. We suggest parking in the middle level of the garage as it is the only level that provides direct access into the medical school. Try to park towards the far end (east end) of the garage.
  • Enter through the door labeled "Hosptial" along the north wall at the far end.
  • Follow the hallway to the end. The doors at the end of the hall (on the right) will open automatically. Go through the doors to the elevators.
  • Take the elevators up to the 4th floor.
  • Exit the elevator slightly left and walk straight down the hall. You will find RR401 about 3/4 of way down the hall on the left.

If Dropped Off

  • Enter the UW medical center through the main entrance located behind the circular driveway. You will be on the third floor of the hospital and the information desk will be directly in front of you.
  • Turn right and walk to the end of the lobby.
  • Turn left and take the Pacific elevators to the 4th floor.
  • Exit the elevator and turn left through double doors. The carpeted floor will change to bare floor. Walk approx. 100+ feet down the hallway.
  • Turn left down the first hallway and follow it past a set of elevators. RR401 will be on your right beyond the large metal recycle bin.
