Penn State College of Arts and Architecture
Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State


Eisenhower Auditorium

Complimentary parking is provided in Eisenhower Parking Deck for patrons attending all performances—except School-Time Matinees and the VOCES8 concert—presented by the Center for the Performing Arts.

Patrons with mobility impairments may be dropped off in front of the auditorium at the Eisenhower Road pull-off near the intersection with Shortlidge Road. Handicap-accessible parking spaces are available on all levels of the Eisenhower deck and in the Yellow F surface lot across Eisenhower Road from the deck. Handicap-accessible parking during Center for the Performing Arts presentations at Eisenhower is also available in the lot between Eisenhower Road and Tyson Building. State-issued disability parking placards are required for access to the handicap-accessible parking spaces. Because parking in the Eisenhower deck is complimentary for Center for the Performing Arts presentations, patrons do not need to have Penn State parking permits. 

Recital Hall at Music Building I

Complimentary parking is provided in Nittany Parking Deck for the Calidore String Quartet presentation at Recital Hall. Patrons with Penn State parking permits will be able to park unassisted. Attendees without Penn State parking permits will need to get a coupon, and instructions on how to use it, from a parking attendant when entering the deck. 

Schwab Auditorium

Two handicap-accessible parking spaces are available behind Schwab Auditorium. The handicap-accessible entrance to the auditorium is at the rear of the building next to Pollock Road.

Complimentary, wheelchair accessible round-trip shuttle service is also provided between the Eisenhower Parking Deck and Schwab. Board the shuttle in the area between the parking deck and the Eisenhower Auditorium rear loading dock. The first shuttle leaves Eisenhower at 6:05 p.m., followed by others every twenty minutes until 7:05 p.m. After the concert, the shuttle makes as many trips as necessary to return riders to Eisenhower.
