Please note for your safety: As you approach the main entrance of The Club & Guest House from the loading/unloading spots in Lot 23 or when you arrive from Lot 22, you will have to cross a campus bike path. The bike path can be very busy, particularly during class passing periods, and bikes will not stop for pedestrians attempting to cross. Please use great caution when crossing the bike path.
There are a small number of temporary loading/unloading spots in Lot 23, directly in front of The Club & Guest House. These spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We ask that you please respect the posted time limit so that other guests may also utilize these spots.
