Parking for J-Day is not included in the fee for the event. If you are driving to the university, you can park in one of four public parking garages on the campus. The garage that is nearest to the Merrill College of Journalism and the Stamp Union is the Union Lane Garage, right next to Stamp. We recommend that garage for J-Day participants. It is a short walk to the Memorial Chapel where this year’s opening ceremony will be held and is very near Knight Hall where the day will end.
Parking when entering campus from Baltimore Avenue (see map 1 below for guidance)
From Baltimore Avenue, turn onto Campus Drive. At the circle, take the first exit onto Regents Drive and then the first left onto Fieldhouse Drive. Follow that around, past the baseball field, until you see Union Lane on your left. Turn left and then turn right into the Union Lane parking garage. Parking for the day is $15. After parking, return to the garage entrance and Stamp Student Union is directly across the street when you exit the parking lot.
Parking when entering campus from Adelphi Road (see map 2 below for guidance)
From Adelphi Road, turn onto Campus Drive. At the circle, take the second exit to and then at the stop sign, turn left to continue on Campus Drive.
