Getting to the CU Linguistics Department

The Linguistics department is located in the historic Hellems building on the west side of campus, just steps from the University Memorial Center (UMC). If you are traveling to campus by bus (e.g., the SKIP bus, which runs up and down Broadway), get off at the Broadway and Euclid stop. If you are traveling by car, consult this list of short-term pay parking sites. As you can see from the map, the Hellems building consist of three wings arranged in a U shape. The 'base' of the U  is the north wing, and the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theater is in the center of the U. The Linguistics department is located in the eastern wing (facing the UMC), on the second floor. Enter the Hellems building through the southeast door (which opens out to the Dalton Trumbo Fountain Court), walk up two flights and make a left at the top of the stairs into the Linguistics corridor. The Department office is the first office on the right, room 290.
