Enter Stowel Hall at the entrance across the street from Barringon Student Union. (This entrance is nearby the statue of Minerva). Once inside pass by Stowell 211 (the big lecture hall on the right SOAR sometimes uses for classes) and go up (via a few steps or the lift) to the landing. From there take the staircase or elevator to the basement. The planetarium is on the right right at the bottom of the stairs, through a display room. Stepping out from the elevator, go through the doorway on the left and planetarium is is immediately on your left, through the display room. Alternative path: If you are coming from parking lot #6 (or even from lot #2, you can enter Stowell from the opposite end (at the quad corner from the exterior archway connection to Timerman). Once inside walk to opposite end of long corridor, stopping on landing; take either the steps or the elevator to basement, following the directions above.
