Parking is paid for through your registration at the conference for two specific lots. The PARTA parking deck (Kent Central Gateway, 201 E Erie St Kent, Ohio 44240) is immediately adjacent to the KSU Hotel & Conference Center.


All registrants parking in the deck need to take a ticket when entering, and MUST bring it to conference registration to get it validated (you will be given a second ticket; you will need both to exit without paying). This will need to be done each day you park in the deck.

Note: If you are a guest at the KSU Hotel, you are eligible to pay a $10 daily fee to park in the deck. This is associated with the KSU Hotel and cannot be reimbursed through the conference.

On the KSU campus, you may park at the Rockwell Hall lot just across the street from the Center for Architecture & Environmental Design. This lot will be labeled as special event parking.


A KSU parking map is located at this website – just make sure to check “parking” and look for the brown R1 Rockwell Hall lot towards the top and left (North West):!ct/5500

You are NOT encouraged to park at spots where there are parking meters when attending the conference. Parking meters are active throughout the city from 9am-5pm (free on evenings and weekends). Parking violations/tickets received will not be waived or reimbursed through the conference.
