Where we are, Visiting the Ray W. Herrick Laboratories, and Contacting Us

We enjoy hearing from our alumni and friends as well as making new friends. If you are just dropping in or phoning for information, regular business hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. EDT, Monday through Friday.  Individual faculty may be around at other times, too. 

The Laboratories are between Martin Jischke Drive and Russell St. on the south side of State Street (SR26) in West Lafayette.  Main entrance is off Russell across the parking lot on the east side of the building. If you enter from the west side, just ring the door bell to gain entrance.  The side shown in the picture below does not have an entrance. Click here for detailed  travel information.

Visiting the Laboratories

If you would like to visit the labs, we appreciate a heads-up so we can make sure someone is available to show you the Laboratories.   We regularly give tours to groups of people, from elementary school children to executives of multi-national corporations.  Whether it is to inspire young people to take an interest in engineering and science or to encourage industry to sponsor research or to inform people about what we do, we are very pleased to arrange tours of the Laboratories.  Alumni interested in revisiting their old research laboratory to see what is going on there these days are very welcome.  Contact us at the phone number below to let us know of your particular interests and we well arrange the visit.
