There are many options for parking on campus. Click here for parking information.
During the prolonged construction at 15th and High St. the most updated information regarding parking and lane closures can be found here.
Please allow extra time for parking due to construction along High Street at the Union Garage entrance. A left turn into the Union Garage from north-bound High Street could be challenging. We recommend if you are traveling north on High Street to turn left (west) at the 12th Avenue/ High Street intersection, then right on College Road entering the Union Garage from the west side. Those traveling south on High Street may want to consider using the ARPS garage (located on 16th Avenue) instead.
