Day Two parking recommendations

Since the start of your Day Two is based on which academic advising overview session you’ll attend, you may opt to park closer to where that session will be! While you’re still welcome to park in the surface parking lot at Lane and Tuttle, you may find these locations a bit closer.

A discounted bar code sticker was distributed at check-in for parking in parking garages (roughly $13, does not allow in-and-out privileges). Instructions for purchasing discounted surface lot tickets can be found below (roughly $10/day and allows in-and-out privileges).
