Directions to UConn Greenhouses

We will be met at the North Parking Garage and

walk from there. Parking in the ground lot just

beyond the garage is also acceptable, because

they don’t enforce parking on weekends.

Coming in from Rt 44, take the Discovery Drive

entrance to campus, which is just west of the

intersection of 195. Follow Discovery Drive to

the light. Proceed straight across: visitors center

is to the right, parking garage is to the left. The

ground lot is on right just past visitor’s center.
