Parking and Directions

GPS does NOT work for our official address.  We recommend following the directions below.  If you MUST use GPS, you can use the intersection of "1st Street and Cardinal Boulevard."

The Speed Museum Parking Garage is the closest to our building. If it is full, you can try the Floyd Street Parking Garage or the surface lot at 4th Street and Cardinal Boulevard.

PLEASE NOTE: On Saturday and Sunday you may park for free in any available parking space on campus except the yellow/orange resident or handicapped spaces. We recommend the red lot between the School of Music and the College of Business. There is a fee to park in the Speed Art Museum Garage on weekends, and discount stickers will not be given.
