Planning a visit? The Cotsen Institute is on the ground level of the Fowler Museum building, which is located in the heart of UCLA's north campus. Click here for UCLA campus maps. Parking is available nearby:

Enter UCLA from Sunset Blvd. at Westwood Plaza. Drive ahead to the Parking Information Booth in Lot #4. Parking is at the northeast or southeast ends of Lot 4, where automated pay stations accept $1 and $5 bills and credit cards. The parking fee is a maximum of $13. The Fowler Building is visible to your left when you ascend from the elevator or stairs (follow pedestrian walkways, indicated by arrows).

The Cotsen Institute is also a short walk from the UCLA Transit Center at Hilgard and Strathmore Avenues, where several public bus lines stop.
