Visitors to Campus

If you're planning a visit to campus and would like to meet with faculty or visit our facilities we strongly suggest you make appointments, and do so as far in advance as possible. Contact information is available on the faculty page.

Where are the Design Group faculty & administrative offices?
Most of the Design Group offices are located in Building 550, also known as Peterson Laboratory. The street address is 416 Escondido Mall, however the building entrance closest to the Design Group offices is on Panama Mall, across from the Mechanical Engineering Research Lab (MERL).  Faculty office numbers are listed on the Faculty & Research page.

Parking Structure 2 at Via Ortega and Panama Streets is convenient to Building 550. You can find up-to-date information about parking permits and other places to park at the Parking & Transportation web site

To Building 550 from the Parking Structure
On foot, leave Parking Structure 2, cross Via Ortega, and walk down Panama Street. Panama Street becomes Panama Mall.  Continue past the Mitchell Building (on your left).  Building 550 is on your left.  MERL and Center for Design Research (CDR) are on your right.

If you have any questions please call your host.

Where are the Design Group Labs?
Many of our labs are located in buildings other than 550. Visit the Facilities page for information about the lab or building you're interested in.
