School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences Building (602 Duncan Drive; Conference Hall)

Parking for the Forestry & Wildlife Sciences Bldg:

For parking at the meeting, there is a 4-level parking deck right across the street from the Forestry/Wildlife building.  You have 2 choices:  You can just park on the RAMP going from level 2 to 3 without getting a pass, or you can go to the parking lot office (in the same building) and request a parking pass and then you can park wherever the attendant allows you to go.  Either way works; it just saves time to park on the ramp.
