Driving Directions

Driving from the east, proceed west on 400 North/Hwy 89 until you get to Champ Drive (about 950 East); make a right hand turn. Driving from the west, go east on 400 North/Hwy 89 until you get to Champ Drive (approx. 950 East), and turn left. After turning onto Champ Drive, drive west in front of the Family Life and Ray B. West Buildings that are located on the south side of USU’s quad. Turn left heading south then turn immediately left again. This will bring you into a small parking lot. On the east side of the parking lot you will see a glass door labeled Greeting Hall. This is where you will be dropping off and picking up your child each day from the lab.

Drop Off and Pick Up

For drop off and pick up, you will need to enter the small parking lot just west of the greeting hall door. Circle the parking lot in a counter-clockwise direction and stop at the greeting hall door in the northeast corner of the parking lot. A teacher will be there to unload and load your child during designated pick-up and drop-off times.

Parking Passes

While their children are in school, parents may park in one of the six reserved spaces just to the west of the Child Development Laboratory. However, in order to do this, you must purchase a parking pass either at the parent orientation or during the first week of school. To obtain a parking pass you must bring a valid vehicle registration on the day you wish to purchase the pass. Without passes, vehicles that are parked in the spaces will be ticketed. If you choose not to purchase a permit, there are several 30-minute parking meters near to this lot where you may park.
