If you're coming in from Downtown on I-45 South, please take the Cullen exit. Drive past the Cullen light and stay left to take the feeder bridge as well as the underpass when you see it. The UH Energy Research Park will be to your right. Please take the entrance immediately before the large billboard (it will have a guard gate). To park, please drive past the guard gate and towards the covered lots. You're welcome to park in any space in this area.


 


If coming in from Galveston on I-45 North, please take the Tellepsen exit and move to the farthest right lane to avoid the underpass traffic. Please make a u-turn under the bridge and the UH Energy Research Park will be on your right. If it happens to heavily rain on this day, the safest route to the ERP would be from 45N taking the Tellepsen exit; campus streets tend to flood and make driving unmanageable
