Driving Directions and Parking

Directions to Andersen Library

Construction Update: During the fall 2013 semester, a construction project on the north side of the Andersen Library building will block access to several entrances to the Andersen Library building. This includes entrance number 3, which is the usual way patrons access the Library from Parking Lot 12. If arriving at the east side of the building, please enter the Andersen Building from entrance number 7 (one of the entrances closest to Parking Lot 12), walk straight ahead down the hallway past the UW-Whitewater TV station offices, turn right at the end of the hallway, and exit the building into the courtyard. There is access to entrance number 3 through the courtyard to the left. The west entrance to Andersen Building (entrance number 12), located along the pedestrian mall, will remain open as usual. Please see the map below for more information.
