    There will be several options for parking. Paid parking is available in the parking garage located behind Cogswell Hall. The garage may be accessed from either Grant Street or Papermill Avenue (please find a downloadable campus map on the website). This is the closest parking lot to Fisher Auditorium that will be available for you to park in on a weekday morning. If you choose to park here, you must park in a yellow lined space, which can be found on the top two floors of the garage. Do not park in a space labeled “Reserved” or that has a 24/7 placard. Make note of your space number, and pay for your space at the kiosk located right by the pedestrian bridge on the third floor.

    If you are bringing a bus, or want to avoid parking charges, parking will be available at the R & P lot on campus. Once your registration form is received, you will be sent a parking pass with a map. A campus map is also available on the Middle School Band Summit website.
