Laboratory for Developmental Language Studies
Welcome!

Our lab is located on Rutgers Busch Campus. Our address is
152 Frelinghuysen Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.
We are located in the Psychology Building addition in the pink wing, where the Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) is located. Our lab is in A102 and A136, which are around the corner from each other. A big metal sculpture that looks like a double-ended funnel is in front of the building. The golf course is across the street.

Included here are directions to our lab from various points. If you have any questions, or get lost, please call us at (848) 445-1600.

Rutgers University also has a comprehensive set of directions to the campus available online.

By TRAIN

NJ Transit provides a direct link to the Rutgers campus via the New Brunswick stop on the trainline. The main entrance to the train stop is located at the corner of Albany Street and Easton Avenue on the College Ave Campus (at the southern end of the platform). Our lab is located on Busch Campus, which is north and not in walking distance from this stop. However, the Rutgers bus system has routes that run from the College Ave Campus to Busch Campus, which will drop you off just outside of our lab.

From the train station, walk northwest up Easton Ave, cross Somerset St. at the light and then turn right on Somerset St. Take an immediate left onto College Ave. You will see the bus stop up ahead on your left, after crossing Hamilton St. The bus stop is across from Scott Hall. Take the ROUTE A (College Ave/Busch) bus to the Allison Road Classrooms (ARC) stop on Busch Campus. See the instructions in the next section for more details about taking the bus up to Busch Campus and locating our lab from the bus stop on Allison Road.

By Rutgers BUS

Rutgers has a very comprehensive bus system. More information can be found here.

Take the ROUTE A or H(College Ave/Busch), ROUTE B (Livingston/Busch), or ROUTE C (Commuter) bus to the stop on Allison Road, across from the ARC building. Cross the road, walking towards ARC and the Psychology building. Enter into the Psychology building from either the front of the building (by the sculpture) or the back of the building (using the ramp), making your way to the bottom floor of the building and the pink wing.

If you are entering from the ramp at the back of the building, turn left, walking towards the lockers. Enter the stairwell through the door across from the lockers, and walk down, entering into the pink wing at the bottom. You will arrive at the main entrance of the Center for Cognitive Science. From there, someone can direct you down the hallway to our lab.

From points NORTH

From the NJ Turnpike, heading South

Take the NJ Turnpike to Exit 9. Proceed through the toll plaza gates, and work your way merging towards the leftmost lanes, exiting towards the RIGHT onto Route 18 North, towards New Brunswick.

Once you have rounded the bend, continue to merge towards the left. Stay in one of the two LEFTmost lanes as you continue on Route 18. The “express” lanes on the left are best. Pass the Cook and College Ave exits, and continue on Route 18 North a few more miles.

Busch Campus exit: After crossing over the bridge, take the Busch Campus/Stadium Exit on the right. (If you see the exit for Metlars Lane, you have gone too far!) Follow long exit ramp past the Visitors Center on the left to the traffic circle/roundabout. Take the second road (as if you were proceeding straight) onto Frelinghuysen Road. 
You will pass a building with square glass tiles on the right, a bus stop on the right, and a gold course on your left.

Once you are on Frelinghuysen Road

Once you arrive at the parking lot and our address on Frelinghuysen Road Turn into the entrance for Parking Lot 49-52B, to the left of the Psychology Building and the sculpture. You will see an outside parking garage on your left. Turn to the right, and park in one of the two spaces on the far left along the wall, which are indicated by signs labeled for the Laboratory for Developmental Language Studies. (Do not turn left. That is a gated lot, and you will not be able to enter.)

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by one of our research assistants, who will provide you with a designated parking pass.

After parking walk towards the wall, and turn left, proceeding along the sidewalk towards the sculpture, and then to the left, proceeding down the stairs into the glass door. (Do not go up the stairs towards GSAPP!) Once you enter the stairwell, proceed down the steps, and open the door into the entranceway for the Center for Cognitive Science.

You will see two sets of offices on either side with glass windows. By this point, you will have met one of our research assistants, who will escort you to our lab. We are located in the back hallway of RuCCS, past the women’s restroom at the end of the hall and around the corner to the right. The lab is located on a corner: A102 is out adult testing room, and A136 around the corner is our main lab.
