Unlike weekends, unfortunately, free parking is not available around Parkes Hall. Be sure to check the signage in the area and park accordingly.

*Parkes Hall is on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, located along Sheridan Road, at the southeast corner of Sheridan Road and Chicago Avenue, just south of the Alice Millar Chapel. Note: The doors on the chapel side on Sheridan Road may not be open when there is a church-related event. Should this be the case, please use the doors off of Chicago Avenue (the south entrance in the photo above), or also on the east side of the building.
