Detail of West Campus - The John Crerar Library is marked on this map. The address for the John Crerar Library is 5730 S. Ellis Avenue, and is accessible from the north by following Ellis Avenue south and walking through the main gateway to the science quadrangle, which is located on the west side of Ellis Avenue, just south of 57th Street. Approaching from the west (the Hospitals side) on 58th street, turn a left at the sign for the library and follow the sidewalk between two buildings (one is red brick and the other a high rise brick and limestone structure). Approaching from the west on 57th street, take a right through the Gordon Center for Integrative Science passthrough (this is a large steel and glass structure with round metal columns) and follow the side walk to the library entrance. The entrance to the library is on the southeast corner of the building.
Visitor parking is available in two locations, on the West Campus in the Hospitals Parking Garage (entrance on the north side of the structure, off E. 58th Street, approach from the west from Cottage Grove Avenue) and in the Ellis Avenue and 55th Street parking structure (entrance on Ellis Avenue on the west side of the structure) on North Campus (see the Campus Map). Parking in the Hospitals structure is cash only, and is $20 for full day. There is an automated payment machine for the Ellis and 55th structure on the ground level.
