Parking Directions
   To find the parking lot in back of Seeley Mudd, drive east on College Street (Route 9) past the Amherst town common on your left. Two blocks after the common, turn right onto the College campus (just before you go under a railroad overpass). Take your second right and follow it until the road ends at the Seeley Mudd parking lot. From the parking lot, take the stairs in the Life Sciences building, just to the right of Seeley Mudd, up one flight, exit and turn left toward Seeley Mudd.
