Driving and Parking

A number of Evanston streets west of the Technological Institute (Tech) allow up to two hours free parking. After that, move it or get a ticket.

The map below shows Northwestern parking lots near Tech; parking permits are required weekdays 8 AM - 4 PM. The North Campus Parking Garage works like a typical garage where you take a ticket and pay on they way out (your host may be able to get you a voucher to avoid paying). For other lots you can get a parking permit in advance from your host, or from vending machines located near many of the parking lots (credit cards only). The North East corner of Frances Searle is likely the best vending location. If you have a permit, the easiest lot to park in is the Noyes/Haven/Sheridan Lot; it is also one of the most popular. If it is full, go north on Sheridan, turn right on Lincoln Street, and try parking in either the Reservoir Lot or the North Campus Parking Garage. You may be also be able to find parking in one of the other lots on the map below, but be sure to check that they allow visitor permits.

More information on parking at Northwestern can be found at the Northwestern parking website. The main Northwestern map page also has a great interactive map for exploring parking options. 

NxR's location in Tech is shown on the map at the top of this page (2nd floor). If you enter the main Sheridan entrance, follow the directions above. If you enter a back entrance to Tech (near Frances Searle) just make your way to the 2nd floor B hallway (northwest part of the building) and then follow the directions above.
