Conference Parking

During regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 7a.m.- 4p.m.), visitors must purchase a permit at a pay station (credit cards only). The permit must be displayed face up on the driver's side of the vehicle's dashboard, so it is visible to parking enforcement staff.

The primary Visitor Lot is located on the east side of the Walsh Family Hall of Architecture (currently under construction). The only entrance to the Visitor Lot is off of Holy Cross Drive. Just inside the lot, there is a parking pay station to the right (the NW corner of the lot).

Additional visitor parking areas are located in the Joyce, Compton, and Baseball Lots. Pay stations to accommodate these areas are located in the Compton Lot (near the bus shelter off of Holy Cross Drive) and in the Joyce Lot (just south of the entrance to Purcell Pavilion). Please click here to see a map showing the location of the pay stations and shuttle routes.

If parking reaches capacity in these lots, the permits from any of the pay stations will allow guests or visitors to park in the Dorr Road, Lake, or Bulla Student Lots. The permits are valid for non-reserved parking spaces only.

The current rate schedule is:

  • 1 hr - Free (must obtain permit and display on dash)
  • 2 hrs - $1

  • 3 hrs - $2

  • 4 hrs - $3

  • 4+ hrs - $8

Weather

The weather in South Bend during November can be unpredictable. We will provide a local weather report the week of the conference, but generally we recommend bringing layers that will allow you to be comfortable whether the weather is sunny and 60 degrees Fahrenheit to snowing or raining and 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
