Online Studies

The Emory Child Study Center is now conducting ONLINE STUDIES as well as IN PERSON! Participate in our fun studies from the comfort of your home or visit us at the Child Study Center and continue to be a part of our engaging research wherever you feel most comfortable. 



The Child Study Center has its own entrance. The Center's door is to the right of the PAIS building's North Entrance doors. Our entrance is slightly recessed under an overhang. The researcher conducting the study will either be waiting for you, or will meet you in the waiting room shortly.

* Please note: If you are scheduled to participate in a study at the Center during off hours, a researcher will be there to let you into the main waiting area.

Parking Information

Parking is available directly across the street in the Peavine Visitor Parking Lot. Participant families will be given a parking validation card that allows you to park in the visitor lot for free. If that lot is full, your parking validation covers the nearby Oxford Road Parking Lot, located next to the Barnes & Noble Store.

If you leave the Peavine parking lot after 4:45 PM, parking is free. You are also allowed to park, without charge, in the faculty/staff parking deck adjacent to the visitor lot after 4 PM.
