Directions to the WKU Department of Physics and Astronomy

The WKU Department of Physics and Astronomy is located on the second floor of Thompson Complex for Science, Center Wing (TCCW).  Thompson Complex is nearly on "top of the hill" on Western's campus at the intersection of State Street and 13th Street.

TCCW is shown as building number 56 on the map below.  The adjacent Hardin Planetarium (building number 55) is an easily recognizable landmark.  On weekends parking is often available in the lot directly behind TCCW (marked with red circle on the map below), however, these spaces require a WKU permit during the school week.  Additional parking is available on State Street in front of TCCW, in a student parking lot at the corner of Chestnut and 14th street (marked with a blue square on map below) and on many of the streets around this student parking lot.  If you follow the general directions to the WKU Campus from either Nashville, Owensboro or Louisville areas then you can follow the arrows to TCCW on the map below.
