Adelaide Microscopy is on the Ground and Basement levels of the Helen Mayo Building, North Wing, Frome Road, Adelaide.

Pedestrian entrance from Frome Road: Enter the foyer of the north building, turn left, walk past the lifts and you will see Reception (NG13) directly in front of you.  If entering from the rear of the building, ring the doorbell at either the ground or basement levels for access.

Parking can be arranged for visitors from other campuses, corporate clients or service engineers by booking a permit with Adelaide Microscopy to use in our visitors reserved parking bays at the back of the building (see location map below). Note that these parking spaces are not always guaranteed to be vacant upon arrival. To access parking you will need to enter the driveway between Helen Mayo and the old Dental Hospital buildings (see map below). The parking permit can be collected from Reception. Phone 8313 5855 or email for permit bookings & details.

Alternatively parking is always available in the multi level carpark (U-Park) situated on the old Royal Adelaide Hospital Grounds. Turn left off Frome Road before the Helen Mayo Building (if travelling south) or turn right off Frome Road at the old RAH hospital entrance (if travelling north). Numerous on-street parks can be found along Frome Road adjacent the Adelaide Zoo, and on Victoria Drive between Torrens River and the University of Adelaide, but are usually limited to three hours.
