Directions from the Wesley J. Howe Center
The entrance to the Library is located across the Great Lawn from the main entrance to the Center. Two sidewalks lead from the main entrance to "The Torch Bearers," a prominent statue on the lawn. The sidewalk that runs to the south of the statue leads directly to the Library entrance, which is noticeable by the gold-leaf sculpture "Moon and Stars" hanging in the entrance portico.
Directions From the Eighth Street Parking Lot
Exit the parking lot through the gate, turn right and walk up Eighth St. to the circular driveway. Walk to the right of the traffic island and follow the sidewalk between the three-story building on the left and the large brick building on the right, which is the Library. Turn right at the end of the sidewalk and continue to the entrance at the far end of the building on the right.
Directions From the Gatehouse
Follow the driveway that runs to the right of the traffic island, and continue straight between the two plaques that mark the beginning of the sidewalk that leads to the Howe Center. Walk up the hill to the third sidewalk on the left. Follow the sidewalk to the Library entrance.
Stevens Institute of Technology is also conveniently accessible by PATH train, NJ Transit train, NJ Transit bus, and NY Waterway Ferry. More details are available on the Stevens website on the public transportation information page.
