Parking in Grant Street Garage

We have two primary seasons at Purdue — winter and road construction. Between March 2016 and May 2017, do not rely on online mapping services for driving directions for Purdue Admissions' visit programs. Use the directions below to avoid construction at the intersection of River Road and State Street. Regardless of your route, road construction on and around campus is common during warm-weather months. Please plan ahead to allow time for unexpected delays.

Use the directions below for parking at the Grant Street Garage, which is across the street from the Purdue Memorial Union. This is the garage we recommend for parking for Daily Visits and for most of our Saturday programs (except for Saturday with the Boilermakers, our football Saturday program). If you have registered for a campus visit through the Office of Admissions, you should refer to the parking directions provided in your visit confirmation email for parking information for the specific program you are attending. 

Grant Street Garage

We do not recommend using online mapping services during the construction project mentioned above. However, here is the address for this garage if you should need it:
120 N. Grant Street
West Lafayette, Indiana
