Commercial Loading / Unloading

There is a 30 minute parking space on Blanchard Circle between the building and Porter Hall for active “Commercial Loading/Unloading.” You have three options for unloading: use the ramped entrance on the Skinner Green side, or use the loading dock in the back on the lake side of the building, or use the "stage door" of the Great Room (under the cupola). The stage door can be accessed from behind Blanchard via Lower Lake Road. To get to Lower Lake Road from 116, turn onto Morgan Street and then the first left onto Lower Lake Road. Please take care not to drive on the grass, and keep your hazard lights on for the duration of loading/unloading.
