For cars, pickup trucks, small passenger vans, and other vehicles under 7’ tall the best place to park is the Northwestern Parking Garage (504 Northwestern Ave). The University Street Parking Garage (201 N University St) is another decent option.

School buses may be parked just off campus at West Lafayette Jr/Sr High School (1105 N Grant St) in the parking lot south of the building or on the north side of Meridian St just south of the football field. Buses can drop off & pick up at the bus stops outside of Armstrong Hall (701 W Stadium Ave) or the Physics Building (525 Northwestern Ave).

Check In

Your lead mentor or other adult in charge for the day will need to check in at the top of Forney Hall, room G140. That location will be staffed all day f you have any questions.


You're all on your own for lunch. The campus area is full of places to find food, including several restaurants across Northwestern & Stadium from out event, and the Chauncey Village area directly to the east of the Purdue Memorial Union. I would not plan on visiting the Union itself for lunch - the food vendors' Saturday hours have been spotty at best.
