Located on the southeastern corner of the intersection is Hass Felix Hall. On the Northeastern corner is Armory. On the northwestern corner is the Lawson Computer Science Building. On the southwestern corner is the University parking garage. Third Street ends at Elliot Hall of Music east of the University and Third intersection. University Street is one way with two lanes headed North through the intersection and a right turn lane that goes East to Elliot Hall. On the west side of University just prior the intersection there is an entrance to the University Parking Garage. The far left lane of University’s two northbound lanes can also turn left onto Third.

On Third Street just past the west crossing there is a bus stop in front of the Lawson Computer Science Building.
