Parking at North Stadium Lot

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 North Stadium Parking Lot, north of Ross-Ade Stadium. This is the parking lot guests use for most full-day Admissions visit events on weekdays. For these events, Admissions provides shuttle bus service from the parking lot to the event check-in location. 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.

We do not recommend using online mapping services during the construction project mentioned above. However, here is location information for this parking lot if you should need it:

Cherry Lane and John Wooden Drive

Parking in the North Stadium lot is free for guests who park there on the morning of Admissions event days. Look for the attendant at the lot entrance to receive a parking pass to display in your windshield.
