No guns allowed in the IRCIn accordance with the University’s Handbook of Operating Procedures, 8-1060 § VII.F.1, the IRC is a gun exclusion zone.  No person is permitted to carry a firearm (concealed or otherwise) into the IRC.


The IRC has two reserved parking spaces on the West side of Speedway near the Norman Hackerman Building, where the IRC is housed. These spaces may only be used by research subjects visiting the IRC for an MRI scan, and only for the duration of their actual participation. These are the only two spaces you are permitted to use while on campus for your MRI scan. Please obtain a parking permit from the person responsible for coordinating your imaging study. If you park in one of these spaces without a permit or elsewhere on campus, you may be ticketed or towed without warning. The IRC is not responsible for fines and/or fees incurred for parking without displaying a permit. You may choose to park in a campus parking garage or in a pay-to-park space, but only at your own cost. The IRC will not reimburse you for parking expenses.

Take Dean Keeton St. to Speedway, and turn South. Do not attempt to approach Speedway on 24th St.; it is no longer possible to access Speedway from those routes. As of December, 2016, this stretch of Speedway is only accessible from Dean Keeton St. Note that there are “Do Not Turn” signs posted at the intersection of Dean Keeton and Speedway. Your parking permit exempts you from that prohibition, and you may turn onto Speedway without fear of being ticketed. Look for the giant outdoor art piece called Monochrome for Austin (pictured below) in front of the Norman Hackerman Building. The two IRC parking spaces are on the right (West side of Speedway) about 100 feet before the boat art piece. Park in either of those two spaces, and be sure to display your parking permit on the dash of your car. You will be ticketed unless it is visible.
