Parking at Grainger Hall for the Greenfield Summer Institute

There is some public parking available nearby to Grainger Hall (where Greenfield will be held) that does not need to be purchased in advance. However, please note that construction on Lake Street has led to reduced availability of easily accessible public parking in the area. Because of this, we highly recommend purchasing parking in advance at a UW ramp.
