Parking: P38

NOTE: Walton Blvd is under construction on eastbound lanes - avoid if possible.
NOTE: Google maps default of this area gives Kresge Library as the nearest landmark. That is ok, as you will be going toward the library on Library Drive! The address Google Maps shows when you specify Math Science Center at Oakland University is 146 Library Ct , however the street view from 2011 is wrong because the parking lot has been expanded since then.
