Directions and Parking

We strongly recommend that employers drop their materials at the Holmes Convocation Center loading dock PRIOR to parking. The loading dock is just passed the Employer Entrance on Holmes Drive. Yard signs marked "Material Drop Off" will lead you there. The Career Development volunteers will carry your materials to your assigned table. If you are approached by a Parking Officer, please identify yourself as an Internship and Job Fair attendee and they will assist you.

Driving directions to Boone, the Holmes Center, and parking are provided here. When arriving at the Rivers Sreet Parking Deck, please take the automated ticket from the kiosk and proceed through the gate. You will receive a hang tag at Employer Registration that will validate your parking. Vans will be available from the Rivers Street Parking Deck to shuttle you directly to the event at Holmes Convocation Center.

Upon departure from the Rivers Street Parking Deck, employers are to use the gate on the right. The gate will be raised and an attendant will take your hang tag; please exit the deck making a right-hand turn onto Rivers Street.
