A parking garage opened at Butler University in Fall 2015. It is located just north of Clowes Memorial Hall and the Schrott Center. Please utilize this campus parking garage when attending Commencement. At the stop sign on Sunset Avenue, between 46th and 49th Streets, turn left (west) to enter the garage. Please review the information on the parking website, for a map of the parking garage location and further parking information.
