Campus Map

All talks will be in MATH 175; this is on the ground floor of the Math building, at the north side of the building (the opposite side from the elevators).

There is free parking in the garage across the street from the math department (marked PGU on the map).

Refreshments will be in the Math Library lounge; the Math Library is on the south side of the building, on the third floor near the elevators.

The National Science Foundation has made some funds available to the Midwest Topology Seminar to support participants. If you wish to apply for support, contact Jim McClure (mcclure@math.purdue.edu) before the conference.

Directions to the math department from I-65: Take exit 178 and turn south onto St. Rd. 43. Continue for about 6 miles to the traffic light at the intersection with State Street (St. Rd. 26); this is the first large intersection. Turn right onto State Street and then continue to the fourth traffic light, which is University Street. Turn right on University. After two blocks the parking garage is on your left and the Math building is the tall building (10 floors) on your right.
