Bus and parking options for Higuchi Hall (Kansas Biological Survey)
  • KU visitors from main campus can take the KU Park & Ride bus from main campus for free, which drops them off right next to Higuchi Hall. That bus runs every five minutes during the semester.         
  • There are yellow, red and blue lots surrounding Higuchi Hall.         
  • For non-KU visitors, there are some metered spaces in front of the Higuchi Biosciences Center, next door, and a few on the very south line of parking stalls in the Park & Ride lot. Bring change for the meters.
