Parking


Due to some of the previous challenges associated with parking on campus, we have made special arrangements this year for all conference visitors to park in the new lots immediately north of the Allen Center (Lots 121 and 122 on the map). These lots face the lake.

Entrance from these parking lots into the Allen Center is via the doors that face the lake and that are immediately behind the Tribune Auditorium.

Once you get on the Kellogg campus, please follow the conference parking signs. A representative from the conference will be at the lot and will provide you with a visitor parking permit. You must have a permit so that your or not ticketed or towed.

*THERE IS NO PARKING IN FRONT OF THE ALLEN CENTER (LOT NEAREST TO THE ENGINEERING SCHOOL OR LOT 123 ON THE MAP). PLEASE DO NOT PARK THERE. YOU MAY GET TICKETED, OR TOWED.

If you arrive after 10am, please stop by the Allen Center to pick up a visitor parking permit.
