Department of Physics and Astronomy 
Mitchell Physics Bldg. (MPHY)
297 University Drive
College Station TX

In 2010 the Department moved to the new Mitchell Physics Buildings, which include MPHY, containing the department offices, and the adjacent Mitchell Institute (MIST). There are also research labs and some offices in the nearby Cyclotron complex, in ENPH, which is the original Engineering-Physics Building, now named the James J. Cain '51 Building, and in the Munnerlyn Astronomy & Space Sciences Building (MASS). For all of these buildings, the most convenient visitor parking in the Northside Garage, immediately adjacent MIST and MASS on opposite sides.

General directions:

From Austin and South, navigate to state highway 21 and head North. Nearing Bryan, take the exit East on Hwy 47. In a few miles this road becomes highway 60, which is also called University Drive after you pass the airport. MPHY and the Northside Garage are on this road, on your right (Ireland St. stoplight) about 2.5 miles past the airport.

From Houston, navigate to state highway 6 going North. In College Station, take the University Drive exit and turn left (southwest). MPHY and the Northside Garage are on University Drive, on your left (Ireland St. stoplight) about 2.5 miles from the Hwy 6 exit.

From Dallas, navigate to state highway 6 going South. In College Station, take the University Drive exit and turn right (southwest). MPHY and the Northside Garage are on University Drive, on your left (Ireland St. stoplight) about 2.5 miles from the Hwy 6 exit.

Alternate Visitor Parking: If Northside garage is full, on the opposite side of University Dr. the Caholic Church has a pay lot about one block away on Nagle that may be a good choice. Slightly further afield there are several lots and garages in the Northgate area across University Dr.
