Parking on Campus

Due to limited parking on campus, we strongly recommend finding alternative means of transportation to Reunion Weekend activities.

If you plan to drive to campus, please plan extra time to park and locate the Kellogg Global Hub (2211 Campus Drive, Evanston). If you have accessibility issues and require the use of a shuttle, please call 847.864.9270 to request a pickup from the garage or surface lots.

Campus Parking Options

- Limited general parking will be available in the North Campus Parking Garage (2311 Campus Drive, Evanston). Please take the parking ticket to open the gate and enter. If you need to exit the garage before 4:00pm on Friday, May 3, press the call button and mention “Reunion Weekend”, and the gate will be opened for you.

- A free shuttle will be running to/from the Foster & Maple Lot on Friday between the hours of 8am-8:30pm. You will receive a hang-tag from the driver to place in your car for daytime parking. This is the preferred shuttle location for Reunion.

- Limited general parking will be available in the South Campus Parking Garage (1841 Campus Drive, Evanston). Please take the parking ticket to open the gate and enter. If you need to exit the garage before 4:00pm on Friday, May 3, press the call button and mention “Reunion Weekend”, and the gate will be opened for you.

- If parking in an open surface lot on campus, you must display a hang-tag to park prior to 4:00pm on Friday, May 3. Parking hang-tags are available at the information desk in the Global Hub.

- Campus parking is free without a permit after 4:00pm on Friday, May 3 and all-day on Saturday, May 4.
