Directions to the Testing Center from Medary Avenue

The Testing Center is located between the Intramural Building (Barn) and Berg Ag Hall. During the summer construction season there is no direct road to the Testing Center.  From Medary Avenue, turn to the east at the Seed House building.  From the north this is the first drive after North Campus Drive.  From the South it is the first drive after the Agriculture Museum.  Next turn south into Lot 110, drive along the Alfred Dairy Science building, turn east and drive along the north side of the building until you are able to exit the lot and turn south where you will see the Testing Center building at the end of the drive.  There is a second Lot 110 that is adjacent to the Testing Center building.

Testing Center Parking

SDSU students are able to park in Lot 117 for free during the summer session.  If you are not an SDSU student, testing candidates are encouraged to park in Lot 110 adjacent to the Testing Center.  Email the Testing Center ( to obtain a guest parking pass for the day of your exam.  If you do not have a parking pass you risk being ticketed and fined.  There are three Testing Center designated spots for non-SDSU test candidates that do not require a parking pass.  All other parking spots in Lot 110 require a visitor's pass.
