CAR - from the South

Take route #2 north. Take the first exit AFTER the Atlit interchange, and before the bridge. The exit is near the MATAM research park and has a sign to the Technion. You then make a right turn at the T junction (mandatory) and then a left at the next traffic light, following the sign to the Technion.

Stay on this road (called Fleiman and then Freud) for about 4Km, until you reach a T junction with a traffic light. Turn left and immediately right at the next light into Pica Road. Follow this road for about 1.5 Km, and bear right after the gas station. After about 1 Km take the left lane where the road goes under a tunnel. Bear right just before the next traffic light into Komoi Street and then i bear to the left at the following light. After 200 meters or so you'll be at the main Technion (west) gate (MAP - Getting to Technion From South).

Within the Technion drive straight, following the main ring road (which bears left just after Industrial Engineering). Turn left just after the third bus stop. The (new) main entrance to the Physics Department is 100 m along this road, on the right. Park where you can.

CAR - from the North and West

Follow the signs to the Technion through Nesher (MAP - Getting to Technion from North/West). If for any reason an entry form has not been faxed to the gate for you and you must therefore park outside the campus, then this gate is closer to Physics than the main gate. (Please see the campus map).

Once through the gate continue straight, turn left at the circle, and then first right. Continue along this road for about 100 m, and you will see the main (new) entrance to the Physics Department on the right. Park wherever you can find a space.
