Driving directions. The Boulder campus offices of the Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences are located on the 6th floor of the Engineering Center.
Denver International Airport (DIA) is about 45 miles from campus and can be reached by public transportation using Super Shuttle (303-444-0808) or regional bus departing hourly (RTD). Most major car rental agencies are also at DIA. If you are driving from DIA, take I-70 West to I-270 North, then follow exit signs to US-36 West (Boulder). It takes about an hour or slightly longer, depending on traffic. US-36 becomes 28th Street as you enter Boulder. The first light you will come to is at the intersection of 28th Street and Colorado Avenue, which leads into the university. Turn left (west) at this light and you will see the Engineering Center on the left, one block further along Colorado Avenue. Parking is available at nearby meters, two-hour limited side streets, or in nearby lots with a prearranged permit.
Directions to CU-Boulder campus parking near the Dept of Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES)
From intersection of US-36/28thStreet, turn west on Colorado Avenue. Turn left (south) at the first signal – Regent Drive/26thSt. The Discovery Learning Center (DLC) is now on your right (west), and Parking Lot 436 is on your left (east). Turn left into Lot 436 (you may use the parking structure if you wish). The DLC is roughly on the SW corner of Colorado Ave/Regent Drive, with the Engineering Center (EC) set back from the sidewalk on the west side of Regent Dr. To the south of the EC is the Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory (ITLL).
Cross Regent Drive at the pedestrian crosswalk, heading west. Walk across a courtyard and under the Engineering Center (the DLC is to your right; the ITLL is to your left) to the elevators, located approximately in the center of the EC.
Take an elevator to the sixth floor. When you exit, you are facing west. Follow the AES signs to the NE corner of the sixth floor, turning left at the Wright Brothers poster. Off this NE corridor you will find offices for the AES Chair, the office manager, undergraduate advisors, the graduate advisor, and our marketing director.
Directions to the Dept of Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES) Onizuka Conference Room
From Lot 436 at the corner of Colorado Avenue and Regent Drive/26thSt., walk west on the south side of Colorado Avenue past the Discovery Learning Center (DLC) to the Engineering Center’s NE corner, nearly on the sidewalk. Just past the small parking lot on your left is a ramp and stairs leading up to a door. Go through the door and up the stairs a little to your right. Go left around the stairwell. The Onizuka Conference Room, ECAE 199, is clearly marked.
If you cross Regent Drive at the pedestrian crosswalk, head west across a courtyard and under the Engineering Center (the DLC is to your right; the ITLL is to your left). Go through the heavy doors and up the white stairs. At the top of the stairs, turn right and walk to the very end of the corridor. Turn right again at the wall, walk to the end of this corridor, turn right again, then left around a stairwell. The Onizuka Conference Room, ECAE 199, is clearly marked.
