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

The bic has two reserved parking spaces on the West side of Speedway near the Norman Hackerman Building, where the bic is housed. These are the only 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 and/or towed without warning. The bic 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 bic will not reimburse you for parking expenses.

DO NOT USE NAVIGATION APPS (e.g. Google maps, Waze, etc.)! They will mislead you. 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. The two bic parking spaces are on the right (West side of Speedway) about 100 feet south of Dean Keeton St. 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. Look for the giant outdoor art piece called Monochrome for Austin (pictured below) in front of the Norman Hackerman Building. Walk under the art piece, turn right on 24th, and enter the building using the entrance on 24th St. Take the elevator to the basement. Turn right out of the elevator vestibule, and use the bic main entrance down the hall on the left.
