Tell them you are going to the Brown building and they will tell you where you can park. Near the Brown building on the ‘Loop Road’ and the Tower Lot (the best place to find ample parking) are both circled on the campus map.
Summer or after 2 p.m. during the academic year: Parking officials will not be present in the guard booth so simply turn left into the Brandeis campus and proceed to the right and up the hill. You may park along this road (‘Loop Road’) if there are spots, or proceed to the Tower Lot, which is circled on the campus map.
