Visitor Information

Offices and research facilities for the Department of Mechanical Engineering are located in Etcheverry and Hesse Halls (highlighted in red on the map) on the north side of campus.


Please read the UC Visitors Center web page for driving directions to campus, as well as useful information regarding parking and mass transit.


For official visitors to the Department: If the Department has arranged a visitor parking permit for you, you may pick up the permit at the East or West Gates (indicated in yellow on the map). Once you have your permit, you may park in either of the two parking structures (indicated in green on the map) located nearest to Etcheverry. The permit is valid in any University Parking Structure, but the two indicated in green are a short walk from Etcheverry. Parking is always a problem, and it is nearly impossible after 10:00 a.m. Mechanical Engineering offices for faculty and staff are located on the fifth and sixth floors of Etcheverry Hall.
