Where to Park

  • Enter campus at Main Entrance Drive, which is the 2nd entrance off Nicolet Drive.
  • There is very limited 15-minute parking at the Circle Entrance, which is right in front of the Library.
  • The closest parking is in the Weidner Center lots. Follow Theater Drive past the Circle Entrance to the lot on the north and west sides of the Weidner Center.
  • Visitors are no longer required to have a visitor parking pass unless they are on campus more than 5 (five) times per semester. For those visitors exceeding the five per semester limit, a free virtual permit is required. The virtual permit uses the vehicle license plate number. You can request a visitor permit online.

Where to Enter the Library

  • At the Circle Entrance (street level), you have the option to walk up the slight hill to the Plaza Entrance of the Library (2nd floor), or walk down the slight hill into the Circle Entrance at the concourse level (1st floor).
  • From the plaza level (2nd floor), the entrance to the Library will be on your right as you enter the building.
  • From the concourse level (1st floor), walk straight down the wood-paneled hallway and follow the brown tiles in the floor to the elevators (down a short hallway on the right). Take elevator #3 to the 2nd floor Library Plaza entrance. To access 3rd-6th floors, switch to elevator #1 or #2.
  • If you prefer the stairs, walk past the elevator hallway to the sign that says Library Entrance. At the top of the stairs, you will be facing the Library entrance. You may access 3rd-6th floors via the stairs.
