Parking Information

Parking Map

Cars: Most of the parking at Purdue is by permit on the weekdays but open on the weekends. You must check posted signs on each space to make sure that parking is allowed. Some of the parking garages are the Grant Street Garage, the University Street Garage, and the Northwestern Avenue Garage.

Bus parking: Buses will park for the day at the Discovery Park lot. The parking lot is right adjacent to this address: Purdue Village Administration Bldg, West Lafayette, IN 47906. See map.

Bus drop off for Division B: Buses should drop students off at the Oval Drive along the curb by Wetherill and Stanley Culter. They must drop students off and leave immediately as there is no parking in this lot. The address to the drop off location is: Oval Dr, West Lafayette, IN. See the map.

Bus drop off for Division C: Buses should drop students off at the Armory lot along the curb by Schleman Hall or Johnson School of Nursing. They must drop students off and leave immediately as there is no parking in this lot. The address to the drop off location is: Schleman Hall of Student Services, 475 Stadium Mall Dr, West Lafayette, IN 47907. See the map.
NOTE FOR DIVISION C: If the coach would like to be dropped off at the Oval Drive (see above) for a short period to get the team registered at Wetherill, that is fine. Once registered, you can then drive to the Armory lot and drop off students and supplies.

Bus Loading: Buses can go to the same location as Drop off to load up materials between 3 and 3:30 before the award ceremony. After load up, buses must go back to the Discovery Park lot until after the award ceremony.

Bus pick up: Buses can stage along the outer yellow curb of Oval Drive on Memorial Mall around 5:15pm. The first bus to arrive must pull all the way down in front of Stone Hall almost to State Street; do not stop at Class of 50. Other buses must pull up directly behind this first bus. Fire hydrants and ADA ramps must remain unobstructed.
