A Flinders University campus map highlighting the location of Lecture Theatre 1.01 HSLTC is below and can be downloaded as a pdf (9MB).

The map highlights the two most common paths for navigating to LT1.01. They are the Main Entrance and Carpark 1, Flinders University.

> The Main Entrance of Flinders University is on Registry Road of the Bedford Park campus. Directions on how to find LT1.01 from the main entrance, can be downloaded as a pdf (691KB).

> Carpark 1 of Flinders University can be accessed via University Drive of the Bedford Park campus. Directions on how to find LT1.01 from Carpark 1, can be downloaded as a pdf (690KB).

Which of these entry points is the best option for attendees, will be determined by their method of transport:
Public Transport.
If arriving by bus then the Main Entrance is your best option. Adelaide Metro Bus Services drop-off and pick-up only a few feet away from the Main Entrance of the University.
Private Transport
> If you are being dropped off
- the Main Entrance is a convenient and regular drop-off point.
- Carpark 1 also has a few drop-off points, at the mouth of its entrance (where the ticket machines used to be). From here, LT1.01 is only a few feet away.
> If you have a Flinders "Blue" parking permit
- blue parking spaces are only available on the top tier of Carpark 1. When entering the carpark from University Drive, the road splits into 3 tiers - take the tier furtherest to your left to find the blue parking spaces. Then follow the instructions for finding LT1.01, via Carpark 1.
> If you have a Flinders "Visitor" Scratch parking permit
- 1-day visitor parking permits can be used for all of Carpark 1 (except car-pooling and motorcycle spaces). Attendees from other institutions can apply to the CNS Secretary for a 1 day visitor parking permit for this event. If using a visitor permit, please don't forget to scratch out the relevant date and place it on your dashboard so the parking inspectors can easily see it.
