GETTING TO CAMPUS

The link above is the University's directions and maps page. It provides maps, virtual tours and driving directions to all UT campuses. It can also answer many of your questions about parking as well.

Most of our events are held in venues are on the main campus of the University of Toledo. However the Center for the Visual Arts (home to our Department of Art) is near downtown Toledo and is located next to the Toledo Museum of Art. A list of our most common venues is in the list to your right. Click on your venue for details about its location, parking, and accessibility information. 

WHERE DO I PARK? WILL I GET TICKETED? DO I NEED A VISITOR'S PASS?

Where to park depends on the venue. A list of our most common venues is in the list to your right. Click on your venue for details about its location, parking, and accessibility information. 

We work with Parking Enforcement to inform them of the date, time and location of our events. In general, Parking Enforcement will not ticket a lot on the weekends (except during certain sports/Savage Hall events). It will also not ticket if one of our events is happening nearby. This does not mean that every lot is not ticketed, just the ones closest to the venue where our event is happening.
