How to get here:

CORL is located on the Indiana University Bloomington campus in the School of Optometry building at the corner of E. Atwater and S. Woodlawn Avenue. The patient clinic, the Atwater Eye Care Center, is in a different building directly across the street from the School.


Parking is available directly behind the School of Optometry building (turning off of S. Woodlawn Avenue).

Additional parking is available in the Atwater Parking Garage located at the corner of E. Atwater and S. Faculty Avenue (1 block east across the street from the School of Optometry). If parking in the garage, please take a ticket upon entry and park only in a spot that does not require a permit (e.g. A). Please bring this ticket in with you to your appointment to get it validated. Otherwise, you will be required to pay upon your exit from the garage.

Please DO NOT park in the surface lot immediately across the street from the School of Optometry, as these spaces all require a permit. These spaces are not controlled by the School of Optometry, but by University parking operations. They regularly monitor these spaces and will provide tickets that we will regretfully be unable to resolve on your behalf.

Please enter the building through the doors in front (north, off of E. Atwater Avenue), behind (south, off of the parking lot), or the side (east, off of S. Woodlawn Avenue). The doors on the east side of the School enter at ground level.

Once inside the building:

Once inside the School of Optometry building, please check in with the reception desk located by the central stairwell and elevator on the first floor. If you have parked behind the building, please sign in your car here to avoid getting a ticket. If you have parked in the garage, they may help you get your ticket validated to avoid any parking charges.

The CORL is located on the third floor. Please take the elevator or stairway to the third floor and follow the signs to the CORL. The receptionist at the front desk will help you with this.
