Due to multiple construction projects in our neighborhood we are experiencing parking issues on and near the main downtown campus. Please allow extra time to find a place to park, or consider the many transit options that serve our downtown neighborhood.
Ample parking is available close to our downtown campus in ramps, surface lots, and on surrounding streets.
