Prepare to stop at the four-way stop sign at the intersection of Floyd Road and Lookout Drive. Next, turn to head west on Lookout to drive onto the University campus. Prepare to make a right at the driveway. That is the entrance to Parking Lots A and B. After turning into the driveway, Parking Lot B will come first and Lot A is just beyond a dividing sidewalk.
