ParkingThe nearest available parking is in the North Ramp at the far north end of Madison Street.
AccessibilityNorth Hall is built into the hill so that the west side entrance is at the basement level, and the east side entrance is level with the third floor. It is advantageous to park in the North Ramp, drive up to the top level, then take the parking ramp elevator up to the walkway, which is at street level with North Clinton Street and the third floor entrance of North Hall.
Space Place Theater is then accessible via the entrance on the North Clinton Street level. From that entrance, take the elevator down to the first floor. Accessible seats in Space Place are located in the front row. Please contact Hancher Accessibility Services at 319-335-1158 to arrange for accessible seating for a specific event.
The accessible pathway from the North Ramp is a somewhat lengthy one since the elevator is located on the opposite corner of the ramp from North Hall.
