NEOtech Conference Parking Information
Kent State University Student Center - 800 East Summit Street - Kent, OH 44240

General Parking Instructions
The entrance to the visitor parking lot is located at the traffic light at intersection of Summit Street & Risman Drive.  Upon entering the lot, please stay in the right hand lane and follow the signs into the ticketed lot area (not the meters).

Parking Validation
Parking for the conference is free! Your parking stub will be validated at lunch. Please bring your parking stub into the conference and have it available at lunch to be validated with your meal.

Handicap Parking
Handicap parking is located in the metered section of the new lot.  Individuals requiring handicap parking must contact the University Conference Bureau (330) 672-3161 for special instructions.

Overflow Parking 
Should the visitor lot be full, participants may park in the lot across the street.  The attendant on duty will ask for your group (NEOtech), issue you a permit and direct you to a parking spot in that area.

Passenger Drop Off
Drivers should use the “metered lane” and continue to the stop sign without turning into the metered lot.  At the stop sign, turn left, and then left again.  The location directly in front of the Student Center is a bus lane and cannot be used for passenger pick up/drop off.  The driver should drive past the bus stop and enter the drop off location on the right, just past the bus stop.
