Event Venue Parking

The University hosts several on-campus events daily. Parking on campus could be challenging considering the volume of students, staff, faculty, event-goers, and visitors to accommodate. However, we efficiently utilize all parking resources to meet our customer's needs, while upholding pedestrian and vehicular safety.

Metrorail Option:

There is a Metrorail stop adjacent to our campus which, makes for a convenient and stress free commute for event goers. From the rail stop, event goers are able to walk to the Watsco Center, Alex Rodriguez Park and Cobb Stadium. Or, take advantage of the Hurry 'Cane Stanford Shuttle to reach our other campus venues.
