Driving to Campus
Take Sheridan Road into Evanston from the north or south. Enter Northwestern at Campus Drive on the southeast end of campus, Entrance A, just off of Sheridan. The entrance is next to Evanston’s south beach, and is marked with signs for Northwestern University and Northwestern’s Boat House.
There is a new parking structure as you enter Campus Drive from the South. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday. At other times, you must park on city streets. You may buy a temporary parking pass at the University Parking Office, located on the ground floor of the Segal Visitors Center, before using the parking garage. See the campus map for the location of the Norris Center.
