* How to get here and Campus map. Lifts are at the interfaces between AY/AZ and between AA/AB, both on the north sides.
When asking for directions on campus, your best bet is Starbucks, because it is located in the OAK building as well as opposite the AZ building.

Note: the Stag Hill campus is multiply connected, highly three dimensional and topologically unclassified/able.
