2023/24 ADA Parking Update for University Theatre Venues
Due to Hellems building construction, ADA parking in lot 208 is currently unavailable. To alleviate this, on show nights at the University Theatre building, we will be using lot 233 as an ADA drop-off zone. Patrons with ADA needs will be able to be dropped off in this lot allowing easier access to the building. The Euclid Avenue Autopark or Pleasant Street have ADA parking. Lot 233 is for drop-off usage only. Parking during the show will not be permitted in this lot.
