You can drive right up to the front door of the Allen Building and park in lot 111, but you need to know the parking rules. No permit is required on Saturday, Sunday, or days when the University is officially closed. On weekday evenings (after 5:00 pm) lot 111 requires a valid TAMU parking permit. Weekdays require a lot 111 permit.

You can park for free in lot 43 (you must have any valid parking hangtag). It is about 400 yards from the ERL. Please note that night permits are valid from 5 p.m. until 6 a.m.


Bus Riding:

There is also bus service, which works well during the week. (The bus stop is 150 yards from the ERL. Use the east entrance. It is the one perpendicular to the bus stop.) The service is infrequent during evenings and weekends. “Route 5 (Bush school) serves the Allen building.


Bike Riding, In-line Skating, or Walking:

It is an easy bike ride or skate on a pleasant day. We don’t advise walking. For example, we are 1.6 miles from the MSC.
