Location of the University Center

The University Center is located on the second floor of the Colleges Nine and Ten Dining Hall.

The University Center is located on the second floor of the Colleges Nine and Ten Dining Hall, which is located off of McLaughlin Drive, across from the Student Health Center.

While parking is very limited at Colleges Nine and Ten, the central campus location of the University Center makes it accessible to the campus community by shuttle, bus, or walking.

The "Perimeter" campus shuttle and Metro buses drop off and pick up passengers on a regular basis on McLaughlin Drive adjacent to Colleges Nine and Ten (on the north side) and the Health Center (on the south side).

For those driving, there are several parking options, but please keep in mind that nearby parking is extremely limited; you may find it easier to park in either the Core West Parking Structure or the East Remote lot and take a campus shuttle.

The closest accessible parking spaces are just north of the University Center on the College Nine service road; there are several more just off the College Ten service road. Lot designations are subject to change; it is advisable to check the permit requirements posted at parking lot entrances when parking on campus. One-day visitor permits may be purchased at the main entrance kiosk or at the TAPS Sales Office (located in the H Barn at the base of campus). Parking meters are posted regarding hours of enforcement.
