As you enter the MAIN campus entrance, follow the directional signs. Parking is located in the Barn Theater parking lot (Lot 122), on the left-hand side as you enter campus. Fair Shuttles will run from the Barn Theater parking lot (Lot 122) to the fair location.  Our shuttle service allows you to load materials directly from your car to the shuttle. We suggest you bring a small, collapsible handcart to transport your materials the short distance from the shuttle to the fair site. Parking permits will be issued at the Barn Theater parking lot (Lot 122) by Event Staff. If you are unable to find a parking attendant or event staff, please refer to the number on your confirmation email.  DO NOT purchase permits from parking kiosks. 

If you do not park in the designated fair parking area, the Career Center will not be responsible for tickets issued by the campus parking control.

Due to the limited number of parking spaces on campus and permit allowances, each Premier (and Non-Profit) Registrations are allowed to bring only 1 car (Diamond Registrations can bring up to 5 cars).

Taking an Uber or Lyft?
Type in "Barn Theatre" as your destination. Once you have been dropped off, you will then be shuttled to the fair venue.
