Hand Delivery address:

The most direct route is to enter Gortner Avenue from Larpenteur Ave.  The Gortner Ave entrance has stairs.  For anyone with mobility issues, please call or email us in advance and if possible we will make an arrangement to meet you outside (612-625-1275). Most UMN doors are currently locked to the public so you can only enter through the eastern-facing doors of Stakman Hall which are open M-F 8am-5pm. (See map below)
