Maps & DirectionsMap to Classics locations

Caveat autocinetistes! ("Let the driver beware") If you are using GPS to find us, be sure to type in "Macfarlane House" as the address, otherwise you will most certainly get lost. Also, parking is at a premium around campus. Although those arriving after business hours should have little difficulty parking within a few blocks of Macfarlane House or Wilbour Hall, visitors are encouraged to allow enough time to find parking. Parking and driving directions can be found on the About Brown page.

Various campus maps are available from Brown's Department of Facilities Management.
