Metered street parking is extremely limited. Whichever parking option you choose, please allow yourself extra time to unload and secure parking.
If you need to drop off boxes, equipment, etc. before parking, there are two unloading zones along Spruce St. alongside Houston Hall. You may use these areas for loading and unloading for up to 30 minutes. The best way to get to the unloading zones is to come down 34 th St. (which is one way and approachable from either Walnut Street or Chestnut Street) and make a right on Spruce St, so that you are going west. Houston Hall will then be on your right along with the unloading zones.
*Due to limited parking, we suggest that you take public transportation if possible.
