Location Tip:

The Physics and Astrophysics building is located at 452 Lomita Mall.  It is at the corner of Lomita Mall and the East-West Axis and is across from the west side of the Main Quad, between the Varian Physics Labs and the Moore MaterialsResearch building.


The Physics and Astrophysics building serves as a central building for the Physics department, containing offices, laboratories, and classrooms.  The Physics Tutoring Center is located in the sub-basement.

Accessible Entrance:

The main entrance is located on East-West Axis, across from the Moore Materials Research building, and is equipped with a power-operated door.  Once inside, the elevator is located to the left.  The elevator provides access to all floors (SB, B, 1 and 2). An additional accessible entrance to the Physics and Astrophysics building is available via a ramp directly in front of the Varian Building, providing access to the courtyard between the two buildings.  There is also an accessible pathway that connects the Varian and Physics & Astrophysics via an exterior courtyard on the 2nd floor (to the left once off the elevator).


All restrooms are wheelchair accessible.  Men¿s and women¿s multi-occupancy restrooms are located directly across from the elevators on all floors.  There are currently no single-occupancy, all-gender restrooms in this building.
