Update (July 21, 2014): The Visitor Center Parking Garage south of the F lot parking structure is now open. University Parking Offices are moving into their new space on the first floor. The new garage is fully accessible with two elevators and designated handicap parking. The temporary ramps to the upper and lower decks will be replaced with concrete. Beginning July 24, work to the lower deck ramp will begin, and the lower deck will be closed for approximately three weeks. Following the opening of the lower level, the upper level will be closed and work to its ramp will begin. This work is expected to be complete the first week of September.

 

Update (July 11, 2014): Effective immediately, the plaza in front of Pick-Staiger Concert Hall is closed due to construction. To access Pick-Staiger and Regenstein Recital Hall, use the pedestrian walkway along the west side of the theater buildings and follow the pedestrian path south of Norris University Center, around the back of Pick-Staiger.

 

Update (April 11, 2014): Arts Circle Drive remains closed to traffic. Beginning Monday, June 23, the north central stairwell and walkway east of the theater buildings will be closed for improvements. After parking your vehicle, walk to the northwest stairwell of the parking structure and exit to the pedestrian walkway along the west side of the theater buildings. This path will lead you to the stairs and ramp to the Arts Circle Plaza and Pick-Staiger Concert Hall. You can access Regenstein Recital Hall by continuing east on the path (toward the lake).

A small lot directly west of Louis Hall will have reserved spaces available after 4 p.m. on weekdays and at any time on the weekends for patrons with handicap placards.

 

How can I get to Pick-Staiger Concert Hall and Regenstein Recital Hall from the parking structure?

After parking your vehicle, walk to the north-central stairwell of the parking structure and exit to a pedestrian walkway. This path will lead you along the east side of the theatre buildings and up the stairs to the Arts Circle Plaza and Pick-Staiger Concert Hall.

Special Needs Access

A small lot directly west of Louis Hall will have reserved spaces available after 4 p.m. on weekdays and at any time on the weekends for patrons with handicap placards.

After turning onto Campus Drive, continue driving straight past the parking structure and John J. Louis Hall and park temporarily in the available turnaround space. From there, escort your guests by following the sidewalk eastward and using the ramp or stairs next to the Block Museum to access the Arts Circle Plaza, Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, and Regenstein Recital Hall.
