Directions to the Barton Center

 

From the
Parking Deck to the Barton CenterNorth or Northeast * Northwest * South or Southwest * East * West * MARTA

Please note:

The Barton Center is not located in the law school building. Our street address is 1784 North Decatur Road. The North Decatur Building is connected to the law school parking deck (Lowergate South Parking Deck) by a walkway. The law school is on one end of the parking deck and our building is on the opposite end.

Where to park:

Allow at least 15 minutes for parking and walking once you arrive on the Emory campus.

Emory University has several visitor parking decks and operates a shuttle that can take visitors from centrally located parking decks to locations all around campus. The visitor parking deck closest to the North Decatur Building is the Lowergate Visitor Parking deck (this is a separate deck from the Lowergate South student/faculty/staff parking deck that is next to the law school). Most visitors will probably prefer to walk from this deck to the North Decatur Building or the Law School, but Cliff shuttles E route and M route are available. Emory University has a web page with visitor parking information, including parking rates.
