For this conference, we recommend parking in Parking Structure 2 (credit card only). Information regarding parking can be found at:


There is also a lot across the street from the planetarium on the corner of Cass and Hancock (next to Tim Horton’s). This lot costs $5 (cash only) and is not run by the University, but is a fine place to park if you’d prefer. You can also find free street parking south of campus, but the parking structure or the private lot across the street are probably the easiest options.
