Parking Details
When attending New Student Orientation, we ask that you park in the Union Parking Garage located off of Kenwood Avenue (2200 N. Kenwood Ave.). From the parking garage, Orientation Leaders and signage will direct you to the check-in area (Union Concourse). Parking for one vehicle is included in the New Freshman Fee and you will be given a pass when you arrive at the garage.

Please note that parking is not available for New Student Orientation until 12:30pm. If you arrive prior to this time, you will not be given a pass and there may not be space to accommodate your vehicle. If you are just dropping your student off, please do not enter the garage as there are a limited number of passes.

Due to limited space, we can only accommodate 1 car per family.
