Where should I park?

If you park in the College Street Parking Lot:

The College Street Parking Lot (with handicapped parking accessibility) opens onto the first floor of the Eisner Center. Take the elevator to your left or climb the stairs and you’ll be on the same level as Sharon Martin Hall, Thorsen Dance Studio, and Burke Recital Hall. Descend the main stairway or take the central elevator down to access the Denison Museum, Hylbert Family Studio Theatre, and Large Rehearsal Space.

If you park on Broadway, in front of the Eisner Center:

If you enter the Eisner Center from the Broadway entrance, you are on the same level as Sharon Martin Hall, Thorsen Dance Studio, and Burke Recital Hall. Descend the stairs or central elevator to access the Denison Museum, Hylbert Family Studio Theatre, and Large Rehearsal Space.

If you park on College Street:

You can enter the Eisner Center from the west entrance at two levels. The upper level (closest to College Street) opens onto the Burke Recital Hall. This also is the level to access Sharon Martin Hall and Thorsen Dance Studio. If you continue down the sidewalk, you can also enter the Eisner Center at the lower level, next to the Denison Museum and Hylbert Family Studio Theatre. You may enter the Large Rehearsal Space around the corner from these spaces.

Where are the Academic Department Offices?

The Academic Offices are located on the first and second floors of the Eisner, accessed most directly from the Broadway Street entrance. The Dance Office, Theatre Office, and Music Office are all located just inside the Broadway entrance.
