Parking for Gowen Hall:
The most convenient place to park for Gowen Hall is the Central Plaza Garage located at 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 41st Street. Enter the underground garage and stop at the manned gatehouse to purchase a parking permit. Ask the gatehouse attendant if you may park on the C3 or C5 levels of the garage as those provide the most direct access to Gowen Hall. If you need to park in a disability stall, just inform the gatehouse attendant and they will designate disability parking on your permit.

After you park, display your permit face-up on the dashboard. Then, take the Kane Hall elevator up to the street level. Gowen Hall is located across the pedestrian path, at the south end of the Quad (map). If the Central Plaza Garage happens to be full, the gatehouse attendant will redirect you to the nearest available parking.
