Gopher Way sign

The Gopher Way is your way to navigate through the tunnels and skyways that connect many buildings on campus. 

Access varies depending on location.  Most are open Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m - 4:30 p.m.  Some tunnels/skyways have restrictions, which are posted at entrances. Always have your U Card with you; some buildings are restricted to U Card access only.
