Ground Floor NG13, Helen Mayo North Building, Frome Road
Adelaide  SA  5000

Adelaide Microscopy Reception is available 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday and is located on the ground floor of Helen Mayo North. 

Pedestrian access is via the front doors of the Helen Mayo North building.  Once you have entered the foyer, 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, press 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 departmental permit for use in our visitors reserved parking bays at the back of the building.  Please note, however, that these parking spaces are shared with other areas of the University and are not always guaranteed to be vacant upon arrival. Please phone or email for permit bookings and details.  The permit should be collected from Reception within ten minutes of entry into the carpark. 

Alternative parking is usually available in the multi-level carpark (U-Park) situated on the old Royal Adelaide Hospital Grounds.  To enter, 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 also be found along Frome Road adjacent the Adelaide Zoo, and on Victoria Drive between Torrens River and the University of Adelaide, but have restricted time limits.

Access to our laboratories is by swipe card only.  Please contact  for further information.
