Directions to the Baker Institute of Public Policy

The easiest way to get there is to enter campus at Gate 20, at the intersection of Rice Blvd at Kent St.

Once inside the campus, turn right at the second stop sign. Immediately after the first building to your left, you will find the entrance for the Central Campus Garage.

The second level usually has the most availability of parking spots. Park near the South elevator and ride up to the first floor.

Turn right as you come out of the elevator and walk out of the building, across Jamail Plaza (past the outdoor fountain), and into Baker Hall.

The welcome desk and the event venue are located straight ahead, just past the lobby and the glass doors, heading toward the center of the building.
