Getting Around

Visitors can take the St. Charles streetcar line to the south end of the campus.  There is a stop in front of Dinwiddie Hall, but please keep in mind that you will have to walk north through the campus to the LBC to attend the conference talks.

If you arrive by taxi, you may wish to instruct the driver to drop you off at McAlister Place and Freret Street for the LBC or the Cowen Circle on St Charles Ave. for the reception.

On-campus Parking

There are several on-campus parking options.

1) For Saturday or Sunday, parking on-campus is free except in permanent reserved spaces, all of which are signed as such. For weekdays, visitors may purchase a one-day parking pass from the Traffic office during business hours and from Public Safety after hours. Vehicles parked on campus must display a permit between 8am and 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.

2) Visitors may also pay to park on the ground level of the Diboll Complex or use parking meters located throughout campus. Parking permits are not required when parking in timed or metered spaces, provided the time limit (posted on each meter) is obeyed and the parking meter is not expired.

3) Free parking is available at the University Square during the day. A free shuttle will drop riders at the central part of campus. The University Square shuttle service operates Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. and runs approximately every twenty minutes. For additional parking information call 504.865.5381.

4) It is sometimes possible to find street parking in the neighborhood surrounding campus. Be aware that much of the street parking has a two hour limit (look for signs).
