Media driving to campus will pay to park if arriving between 8 a.m.and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Pay-as-you-go machines are located in the Katzen Arts Center garage (across the street from the Glover Gate), and in the Nebraska Avenue Parking Lot, located along Nebraska Avenue across from the campus. All other parking lots and garages are by permit only.

Arrangements for broadcast live remote trucks or any other special accomodations must be coordinated prior to arrival with the Media Relations office.
