FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We have plenty of parking space available on-campus, in the parking lot across from Orchard Hall. On-campus public safety will provide direction, along with signs. It is a lovely quick walk from the field parking lot to the main building: Esther Barazzone Center. Please let us know if you have any special transportation needs, so we can arrange.

Shuttles will also be available for students and other attendees for free. They will leave from Chatham University's Shadyside campus (1 Woodland Road, Pittsburgh, PA, 15232), at the top of the hill next to the Chapel at 8.30am. The same shuttle will depart from the Eden Hall Campus at 4.30pm. Please note that if you are driving, you will need to park off campus and walk to the shuttle! Free on-street parking is available on Murray Avenue/crossroads and College Avenue/Emerson Avenue off of Fifth Street.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email Jess at Jessica.Canose@chatham.edu with any questions! We look forward to hearing from you.
