PARKING AND ACCESS
CLICK HERE for a map of the Dean Smith Center area. Because of the timing of the ceremony and construction in the area, we expect parking to be an issue. Please plan to arrive early if you hope to park within walking distance of the Smith Center. If someone in your party is unable to walk from the parking lot to the Smith Center, we suggest asking the parking attendants about dropping off passengers close to the venue before parking.
All Sotto Voce and Chamber Students: Be parked by 2:30pm and on the Gym Floor at 3:00pm!
