Travel Directions By Car to the GITC Entrance Ramp
You can follow the directions above to the parking deck, but instead of trying to get to the Warren Street (South of NJIT Campus), go to the Central Avenue (North of NJIT Campus). From Central, turn into NJIT through a one way street named Summit Street (if traveling on Central going East, turn right, else you will turn left in to NJIT). Note that Summit street is not a through street, i.e. you cannot drive through across the campus. On Summit, in half block, you will see a guard booth, turn right and continue. You will pass our Library building on right, then the Mechanical Engineering Center (MEC). Look for parking on right just past MEC by the GITC bluiding. You will notice several "Handicapped Parking" spaces, and the entrance to the GITC building is right there. In the building, take the elevetor to third floor. There should be signs indicating the location of the Symposium rooms.
