  • General directions to the Cook Building can be obtained from our web page.  The closest parking on Saturday for the Humphrey Symposium is the parking lot behind Perkins, Votey, & Torrey Halls, which is much closer than the weekday parking meters indicated on our directions to chemistry on our web page.  You can see the edge of this parking lot on our "driving locally" directions page under point #6.  This parking lot is accessed from Colchester Ave, between the FAHC hospital entrance and University Place.  Click here to get a brief PDF map showing the Votey parking lot.
