Area Information

Directions and parking

Driving note: if coming by car, be aware of road closures from the I-85 bridge collapse in midtown Atlanta. This has disrupted traffic patterns, which might make your trip longer, depending on where you are coming from. Navigation like Google Maps usually shows the blockage and suggests alternate routes. Information and maps from the Ga. DOT .

Here is where to find Robert W. Woodruff Library: Map

There are a few parking decks around campus. Your best bet will likely be Fishburne or Oxford parking lot as they are the closest to the library. Parking fees are $12 a day. For more information about visitor parking, please visit Emory's parking site.

Local transportation

If you are staying in the Emory area, there are public transportation options. Emory shuttles are free, and they run fairly often. Shuttles of interest may include the CCTMA, which stops in Downtown Decatur and the Emory Conference Center, as well as the many shuttles that go down the Clifton Corridor in front of the Emory Conference Center. The Emory Conference Center also has its own shuttle that you can request to take you to campus. More information about the Emory Cliff Shuttles can be found here:.
