Driving and Parking
Recommended Parking for Admissions Visit Programs
We have two primary seasons at Purdue — winter and road construction. From March 2016 through May 2017 road construction will affect a key intersection east of campus, River Road and State Street. To avoid this intersection, follow the driving directions on this site rather than using online mapping services. During warm-weather months, road construction is common on and around campus, not just at this intersection. Plan your trip accordingly and allow time for unexpected delays.
Recommended parking locations for Admissions visit events vary based on the event. Those who register for a visit through the Office of Admissions should refer to their visit confirmation email for event-specific driving and parking directions.
For most full-day visit programs on weekdays, guests park at the North Stadium Parking Lot and ride a shuttle bus to the event check-in location.
For most full-day visit programs on Saturdays, guests park at the Grant Street Garage and walk to the event check-in location. (Saturday with the Boilermakers is an exception - those who arrive early enough for this football Saturday program can park in the Northwestern Avenue Garage.)
For Daily Visits (2-3 hour programs on weekdays and weekends), guests park at the Grant Street Garage and walk to the visit check-in location.
