Location on OU's Norman campus

The SRNML is located on the south oval of the University of Oklahoma Norman campus, distributed between three adjacent buildings: Noble Microscopy Laboratory (NML), Richards Hall, and George Lynn Cross Hall (GLCH). Additionally we support an SEM in the Sarkeys Energy Center (SEC).

To get there come across the mall on the west side of the parking garage to George Lynn Cross Hall (Botany/Microbiology). You can enter through the doors on the south end of the building. Find the elevators and come up to the second floor. Upon exiting the elevator turn right and you’ll see the doors to the EM lab. Just come down the ramp to the lab.

The Samuel Roberts Noble Microscopy Laboratory is located to the west of the Asp Street parking garage attached to the OU football stadium (Owens Field). The parking lot can be accessed by travelling north on Asp from Lindsey St., in between Elm to the west and Jenkins to the east. The parking garage features pay stations on the 2nd level and faculty-staff parking on levels 3 and 4.  If arrangements are made, we also have visitor parking passes to share so you can park in the Visitor spaces.
