Where to Park

The School of Art has temporary (30 min) spots available on the backside of the building between the A+A and Clarence Brown Theater, as well as temporary spaces in the loading zone. These should be used for loading and unloading purposes only, cars in these spaces will receive tickets if parked longer than the designated times. Visitors wishing to stay longer must obtain a visitor's parking permit from the information kiosk located at Circle Park. These permits will allow parking in Lot 23 located directly behind the building. Events and functions in the evening do not require a permit, however if there is a theater production or a sports event, visitors may be asked to pay to park in the lot.
