Job Fair Parking

Free parking will be available in Bradley’s Main Street Parking Deck, located on the corner of Main St. and A.J. Robertson Court. Bradley’s Renaissance Coliseum is conveniently located right across the street from the parking deck. To enter the Coliseum, use the side entrance on A.J. Robertson Court. Look for the employer entrance signs to guide you. If you would like assistance with boxes or display items, students will be available to carry in items at the side entrance on A.J. Robertson Court. Pull up your car to the side door, which is located right across the street from the entrance ramp to the Parking Deck.  (If you have several large items to drop off, please call 309-677-2510 to arrange to use the Coliseum loading dock off Haussler Lane.)

Please note that you will be ticketed for parking in the Faculty/Staff/Student parking areas or in loading zones, along curbs, or in restricted areas.
