If you are arriving on Sunday and plan to attend the campus tour at 11:30 am or the ice cream social at the Purdue Graduate Student Center (PGSC) from 8:00 pm-10:00pm, you may want to park in the Northwestern Avenue garage, which is right next door to the PGSC. Parking is free on Sunday, Oct. 4th. The garage is an easy 5-7 minute walk from the Purdue Memorial Union.

For those planning to go directly to the Purdue Memorial Union (PMU) to check-in, free Sunday parking can also be found in the Wood Street garage, which is a quick 2-3 minute walk from the PMU. 

The closest parking to the PMU can be found directly across the street from the PMU in the Grant Street garage. Spaces are available in this garage on Sunday and Monday for a fee. One free parking pass per attendee can be obtained on Monday, Oct. 5th, 2020, while supplies last, by completing the Grad Expo Student Event Evaluation form in your registration folder. To obtain the parking pass, take your completed evaluation to PMU118, event registration, before departing.


If you arrive on Sunday, most Purdue parking garages are free over the weekend, including the Wood Street garage, which is a quick 2-3 minute walk from the PMU. On Monday, you will want to park in the Grant Street Garage, which is located directly across from the PMU. This garage charges a fee on the weekends and week days. Upon check-in on Monday, one parking voucher is available per recruiter registrant. This will allow you to exit the Grant Street Garage on Monday. Spaces in other campus garages or surface lots are reserved during the work week for University staff members who have paid an annual parking fee.
