Driving Directions from I-80:

  • In Davis, take the Richards Blvd. exit towards Downtown Davis
  • Merge onto Richards Blvd. (headed North, towards downtown)
  • You will continue briefly on Richards Blvd., passing under the train tracks into the edge of downtown Davis.
  • The signal directly after the train tunnel is at First and E Streets. 
  • Turn LEFT onto First Street.
  • First Street will continue for several blocks and end at a traffic gate on the edge of the UC Davis campus.
  • You will be forced to make a RIGHT turn onto A Street.
  • After turning onto A Street, you may park in the second parking lot on your LEFT.
    • If you get all the way to the stop sign at 3rd Street, you’ve gone too far.
  • In the parking lot, there are two 30-minute loading spaces. Please park in one of these spots.
  • If you have a cell phone and are expected at the lab for an appointment, please call (530) 754-9439 and ask for Michael.
  • If you do not have a cell phone, please walk towards the campus (away from A Street) where you will enter into a passage between two buildings. The square cement building on the RIGHT is Social Sciences. The first door, just beyond the small grassy area, has a pad with several buzzers on it. Please ring the bell for room 1324 and someone will meet you at the door.
