Parking passes should work in the South Lot of Smith Warehouse, and in the Bryan Center Garage. Tell the attendant you are with CHAT.

The C-1 and C-2 buses circulate frequently between East and West campuses so you can shuttle back and forth that way as desired. The closest stop for the C-2 is on Campus Drive at Maxwell. The closest C-1 is in the center of East Campus. Check out the Parking and Transportation Office for more information.


While we are providing coffee, pastries, and lunch, you may also want to strike out on your own. Check out our Food Map in your packet if you want to go further afield than campus eateries. Durham is famous as a “foodie” town! We recommend you visit some of the many excellent restaurants in the local area, on 9th Street, in Brightleaf, and beyond. Many downtown locations are easily accessible via the Bull City Connector bus. Others are a quick car trip away.
