We are part of the New Chemistry Building and are located across the hall from the sourthernmost entrance to the building.

Parking is available in the 43rd & Elkhorn Garage at the corner of Elkhorn Ave. and West 43rd St. On the map above, follow the black route from Hampton Blvd to Elkhorn Ave. Turn right onto Elkhorn. You must enter the garage from Elkhorn Ave! Do not park in the faculty/staff side of the garage. It is part of the same complex but has a separate entrance. You will get a ticket if you park in the incorrect section of the garage.

There is Hourly parking on the first floor, the ramp to, and on half of the second floor. The price is $1.50 per hour. Please pay using MobilePay immediately after parking your vehicle to avoid citation/towing. To use MobilePay, look for the signs with the Lot Code or QR Code and text or scan the code with your mobile device to follow the step by step instructions. On-Campus ADA parking spaces require both a valid DMV issued plate or placard and a valid ODU Permit or Hourly Parking payment.

To get to the planetarium, walk across Elkhorn Ave and enter first set of doors the Chemistry Building on the left. The planetarium entrance is in the lobby across the hall from those doors.
