DESCRIPTION / DIRECTIONS: Johnson Hall of Science, is the newest science building on campus. It a two-story, U-shaped,  modern (red brick, lots of glass) structure built around a small outside plaza. It is squeezed into the new center of the campus near the new student union and the main dining hall in Sykes Residence Hall. Johnson Hall sits downhill at an angle to Park St. and the other buildings around it. Johnson 244, a lab classroom, is on the second floor in the middle of the corridor closest to Park St. if you are coming from "J" lot (the closest parking lot to the science buildings), enter Johnson Hall at the second doorway (at the breezeway shared with Bewkes Hall) and turn right and take the elevator (or nearby stairs) to floor 2.  Back-track left over the bridge to the corridor closest to Park St., turn right - room 244 is on the left halfway down this hallway.  If you are coming from "H" lot  (a longer walk passing by many campus buildings), enter the central doorway that faces the new student union, turn right and take the stairs to the second floor; walk about halfway down the long corridor to find Johnson 244 on the right.

PARKING: SLU has a "walking" campus - you cannot drive up to many of the buildings to drop off people. However, there is a circular drive at Johnson Hall. You can't park in the drive, but you can drop off people there - close to an entrance - which makes it convenient for attending SOAR classes at the science buildings as they are connected via inside corridors (or in the case of Johnson Hall and Bewkes Hall - connected  by an outside covered breezeway)

Park in lot "J" (just beyond the science buildings at the edge of campus and across from the sports buildings). Enter J lot from Park St. just beyond Bewkes Hall. (NOTE: if you miss this entrance, just continue to the service drive entrance for the university and turn left, and immediately left again into the far end of J lot.) Do not park in the spots marked for "faculty/staff," i.e. those nearest the buildings. Walk up to Park St., and then walk along Park St. and past Bewkes Hall to the circular drive. Walk down that drive to enter the second door into Johnson Hall (at the breezeway connection with Bewkes). Then follow the directions above to the room.

Park in lot "H" (across from Gulick Theater and next to Vilas Hall - administration building). From Main Stree, turn into the formal SLU entrance; H lot is the first parking lot on the right. Open parking is found in the last rows of the lot. (Don't park in faculty parng or other marked parking areas.) Walk up the hill (past Vilas Hall) turn left and pass by Richardson Hall, the chapel, Carnegie Hall, (or shortcut diagonally over the open quad to Carnegie); continue walking, passing by (set back) Hepburn Hall, Sykes Residence (and main campus dining hall), and passing byt the new student union (on the left), and finally, down the hill to Johnson Hall of Science. Enter the central door that faces the student union, then follow the directions above to room 244.


ACCESSIBILITY: The classrooms building is handicap accessible. However, parking is fairly far from the building, and the walk to get there is uphill. It's best that handicap people be dropped off in the circular service drive (entrance from Park St.) near the building

RESTROOMS: Restrooms are in the opposite corridor; from room 244 walk down the hall (i.e. towards the center of campus); turn right, pass through the short corridor, turn right into the opposite long corridor; restrooms are immediately on your right.

TECH and OTHER EQUIPMENT: two computers at each lab table.

FURNISHINGS: chairs / 6 lab tables seating 4 each
