The Boole Lecture Theatres are adjacent to the Boole Library. In fact, they are underneath it, but access is beside the library building, adjacent to the Crawford Observatory.

As for parking, on street parking at that time of day may be possible. Parking on campus MAY be possible at that time also. Perhaps ring ahead to confirm this. Contact details are available here.
