Come into the campus via Fifth Avenue. (GPS Coordinate: 5918 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15232.) Turn onto Murray Hill Avenue. (If you are coming from Oakland, turn right off Fifth onto Murray Hill Avenue.) After following Murray Hill Ave about a half mile, turn left into the Library parking lot. Turn left again and drive along the back of the library (past a large blue dumpster). Continue as far into the parking lot as you can. Once you pass the back of the library, you will see a greenhouse and Buhl Hall in front of you and to your right. The easiest way to find Laughlin Hall is to pass the greenhouse on your left and past Buhl Hall on your left (Coolidge on your right). Laughlin Hall is the next building. You will see a flagpole in front of the Welker Room entrance at Laughlin Hall. You can find the Library, the Library Lot, and Laughlin Hall on the campus map:
