Directions to the VISTA Lab

Campus map:  484 Building 420 (Psychology department)

From Highway 101 take the University Ave. exit heading towards Palo Alto. Continue for about 3 miles along University Avenue through Palo Alto, over the El Camino overpass, onto Stanford Campus. On campus the street is called Palm Drive.

Continue to the end of Palm Drive where you will find a large parking area called the Oval. Building 420 (formerly Jordan Hall) faces out onto the Oval. The building is on the right hand side when you are facing the Memorial Church, which is easily seen as you drive down Palm drive.

From Highway 280, the path is a bit more complicated. Exit 280 on Sand Hill Road. Go straight on Sand Hill, crossing Junipero Serra, to Stock Farm Road. Make a right-hand turn and continue to Campus Drive. Make a left on Campus Drive and follow it around campus (about 2 miles) until you intersect Palm Drive. (There is a lot of construction). Make a right onto Palm Drive. See above.

PARKING: All locations in the A and C lots are open without fear of ticketing after 4 (or 6) pm. Earlier than that, paid parking using either credit-card kiosks or a parking app are available in various locations

My office is on the 4th floor in the back wing of Building 420. Once you get into the building, ask for Brian Wandell by name. Most people will be glad to help get you here; we all know the building is confusing.
