Access helps you find places using landmarks and pathways. Nearly any clinic or
service you need is in or near a landmark, or along or near a pathway.
First, use this web site to get customized, printed driving and walking directions to your destination.
When you arrive at the M. D. Anderson campus look for the street name and building entry number of your destination.
Once inside an M. D. Anderson building, use a touch screen kiosk to get customized printed directions to your destination.
Then, get on the Access pathway. Use your customized, printed directions to follow the signs and maps along the pathway that show you which direction to travel.
Once you get to the landmark, look for signs to your specific destination.
What is an "entry marker"?
Numbered entry markers are large signs that greet employees and visitors driving into the Texas Medical Center. Using the customized information available through the Access web site, visitors can easily identify the entry marker for the entrance they need to use.
What is a "landmark"?
A landmark is a large public place or a public elevator at M. D. Anderson with a unique name and symbol, a touch screen directory and other wayfinding tools. An icon of a star, for example, is the symbol for the Star landmark.
What is a "pathway"?
The Access pathway is like a highway and uses signs and maps to lead users from landmark to landmark as well as to shuttle points and skybridges. Most often the pathway follows a hallway, but it can also use skybridges, stairways, or corridors to connect users to destinations.
