Parking

There is no long-term visitor parking in the immediate area of the Telfair Peet Theatre building. Parking rules are enforced from 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. It is not advised to park in a restricted lot during these hours. On weekdays before 5pm, guests may park at the top of the stadium parking deck, located at the end of Duncan Drive (a very short walk to the theatre building).

If you have scheduled a campus tour with the Office of Admissions and Recruitment on Monday through Friday, you may park at the Jule Collins Smith Museum on South College Street and take the Charcoal Line shuttle service to campus. The museum is a tan building with a pond directly in front of it, located south of the main campus (from Telfair Peet and Samford Avenue, turn right onto College Street). At the museum, turn left onto Woodfield Drive (coming from campus). The parking lot is immediately on your right. Park in the second parking area as you enter the parking lot. Walk to the visitor center, located at the main entrance of the museum. Once inside, you will be given information on the arrival of the next shuttle. The shuttle runs in 30-minute intervals from 7:00am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday, and will take you to the Quad Center. From there, you will begin your campus tour or you can walk to the Telfair Peet Theatre building.

Parking rules are not enforced on the weekends, during which you may park in the Telfair Peet Theatre lot at the corner of Samford Avenue and Duncan Drive, the entire stadium deck, and open lots located between the theatre and parking deck. (However, open weekend parking is not available gameday Saturdays during home football games).
