The Central Plaza Parking Garage (CPG) is the most convenient place to park for events in Kane Hall and Mary Gates Hall.

Central Plaza Parking Garage (CPG)

Enter the garage via the east entrance at 41st Street and 15th Avenue NE.
There are two types of visitor parking at CPG.

  • Gatehouse: Stop at the CPG Gatehouse, pay the attendant, and park where directed.
  • Self-Service: Bypass the gatehouse and find an available spot on levels C02, C03 or C04. Payment is made via the PayByPhone app. [Location #123211]

Event Parking Codes
Some events may offer a code to waive the parking fee. If your event provides you with such a code, present it to the gatehouse attendant.

Once parked, you can access Kane Hall and Mary Gates Hall in the following ways:

Kane Hall Access

The easiest way to access Kane Hall is from the C1, C3, and C5 garages located in CPG. Look for the Kane Hall signage and corridor in the northeast corner of the garage.

Take the elevator to the appropriate floor:

  • 1st floor for Rooms 110, 120, 130
  • 2nd floor for Rooms 210, 220, Walker-Ames

  • Take the stairs leading to Red Square, then head south toward the Drumheller Fountain.

Alternate Parking Locations

  • North Gatehouse: via 45th Street and Memorial Way. Pay at the gatehouse and park where directed.
