Parking in Northwestern Avenue Garage

We have two primary seasons at Purdue — winter and road construction. Between March 2016 and May 2017, do not use 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 Northwestern Avenue Garage. This is the garage we recommend for our Saturday with the Boilermakers program. On football Saturdays Purdue begins collecting $10 for parking three hours before kick-off (cash only).

If you have registered for a campus visit through the Office of Admissions, you should refer to the parking directions provided in your confirmation email for parking information for the specific program you are attending.
