From the east

Follow University Avenue to Campus Drive; stay in the right lane and exit at Highland Avenue. Turn right at the exit stop sign and continue on Highland to the Waisman Center, approximately a half mile, just past Nielsen Tennis Stadium on the same side of the street.

From the west

Follow University Avenue and turn left at the University Bay Drive/Farley Avenue intersection. Continue over the hill onto Highland Avenue, past the Emergency Room Entrance. The Waisman Center is at the bottom of the hill, on the left, across the street from UW Hospital & Clinics.


Parking for drop‐off and pick‐up, as well as special WECP events, is available in the lot adjacent to the Waisman Center. Parents are issued hang‐tags for drop‐off and pick‐up times. Several regulations apply to parking and are reviewed more completely in the WECP Family Handbook.
