If you’re driving to the Friday Center for the events on Monday-Thursday, be sure to print out the parking permit that was sent to conference participants by email, and put it on the dashboard of your car.  Also be sure you park on the correct side of the building.  If you park in the wrong location or fail to display your parking pass on your car, you will receive a ticket. Here are the directions:

  • Turn onto Friday Center Dr. from Rt. 54 (from either direction)
  • Go past the Friday Center on you right. Do not turn right into the parking lot that sits between Rt. 54 and the Friday Center
  • Turn right immediately after you pass the Friday Center building on your right. You will know if you are on the correct side of the building if you see a pedestrian bridge from the second level out to the center of the parking area. Park in any non-handicapped spots in the large circular lot to your left. Do not park in the staff lot that is immediately beyond the Friday Center building on your left.


If you’ll be driving to campus for a workshop or tutorial on Friday, be aware that public parking on or near campus is quite limited.  You should plan ahead by consulting the visitor parking map.  The closest parking options for the campus events are Rams Head Parking Deck, Raleigh Road Lot or Morehead (Planetarium) Lot. There are also several options 1-2 blocks north of campus on Franklin Street and Rosemary Street.
