Parking on Campus

We recommend that Reunion guests park in the North Campus Parking Garage at 2311 Campus Drive. If the North Garage is full, try the South Garage, which is connected to the Segal Visitors Center at 1841 Sheridan Road, and follow the signs to the Kellogg Global Hub.

Parking on campus is free without a permit after 4 p.m. on Friday, May 4, and all day Saturday, May 5. If you park on campus prior to 4 p.m. on Friday, there are a limited number of free parking spaces in the North Campus Parking Garage.

Please plan extra time for parking and locating the Global Hub. If you have accessibility issues and require the use of a shuttle, please call 847.864.9270 to request a pickup from the garage.
