Where to park

As in any large city, parking can be a challenge. If you choose to drive to campus (and there are alternatives), please allow an extra 30 minutes or more to secure a parking space. If you do find street parking, please be aware that metered parking boxes have a two hour limit. Our information session and tours can often be longer than two hours and you may not be able to "feed the meter" easily during the visit.
