The ENL lab is located at B313/B317 in the basement of East Hall. We are in an interior hallway, one over from the northernmost hallway of the building. But, if you are coming for group testing, this is probably not where you will be coming (see below).

Much of our testing is done in groups in the computer lab (B254 or B250) in the basement of East Hall, in the northernmost hallway of the building (far right side, if you are facing the building from Church Street).

It is difficult to find these labs and the building is locked most evenings and weekends, so most of the time we ask people to meet us *outside of the building on Church Street*, at the entrance to the Psychology Department (the southern entrance is for the Math Department).

If you were asked to wait outside, *please* do wait outside and we will come out to find you. Please be on time so you are there when the researcher comes to let you in to the building. If you are late, we will come back up at approximately 15 minutes after your appointment starts to check for you again. We do not have access to a phone in the computer lab, so it is hard to reach us if you get lost or are late.


There is metered parking outside of East Hall and on South University, which usually has openings in the evenings and weekends. If you cannot find a space on the street but work at the university, there is a University Lot (Blue and Gold passes) just across the street from East Hall on Church Street. If you do not work at the university, there is a paid lot just one block away that can be accessed from Forest Street, just south of the intersection with South University (see map below).


FROM THE EAST: If you are coming from east of Ann Arbor, take highway 94 to route 23N. Exit onto Washtenaw avenue towards Ann Arbor (west). Follow Washtenaw past the shopping centers until it splits at the Bearclaw Coffee stand. Bear right to stay on Washtenaw. Turn left on South University. If you are going to the paid lot, turn left onto Forest Street and the parking ramp will be on your right. If you are going directly to East Hall, turn right onto Church Street and East Hall will be on your left. The Department of Psychology entrance is the second one, at the far/northern side of the building.

FROM THE WEST: If you are coming from the western side of Ann Arbor, take I-94 east. Take exit 172 toward Ann Arbor. Slight left at Jackson Avenue. Follow Jackson Avenue across the large intersection with W. Stadium Boulevard, bear right as road becomes W. Huron Street. Continue on W. Huron Street across Main Street, through town, follow the road as it makes a 90 degree turn after Fletcher Street and turns into Washtenaw Avenue. Turn right at the intersection with Geddes Avenue/N. University on to N. University Avenue. Take the first left onto Church Street. East Hall will be half way down the block on your right; the Department of Psychology entrance in the first one, on the north side of the building.
