Parking for the Festival Concerts in Esber Recital Hall

NOTE: Allen Road in front of the School of Music is being widened to add a turning lane. Please use caution and plan accordingly. It will be best to use the entrance in front of the Nittnay Lion Inn to access the Nittany Parking Deck if you are coming from Atherton Street. Please look for Penn's Woods GREEN AND BLUE directional signs near the Nittany Parking Deck. - Thank you.
Purchase your permit now for hassle-free parking when you attend an arts  performance, lecture, athletic, or special event. The School of Music's Esber Recital Hall is located near the northwest corner of the campus, and visitor parking is available at the Nittany Parking Deck for an hourly rate. General parking is available for $1 per hour at the Nittany Parking Deck, with no charge on weekdays after 4 p.m. for vehicles displaying a valid Penn State parking permit.

ADA parking is available on each level of the Nittany Deck, with elevator access located at the southeast and northwest corners of the facility. A valid state-issued ADA placard or license plate is required, along with a valid Penn State parking permit or payment of the hourly parking fee. Additional ADA parking is available at Lot Green H, but requires a valid Penn State parking permit prior to 9 p.m. on weekdays. One-day permits may be obtained at the Parking Office or at any parking information kiosk.

Why the Parking Pass? 
Penn State parking lots are monitored year-round. Surface lots near the School of Music are reserved until 9:00 p.m. during the weekdays. The monthly pass is accepted in these lots! Frequent concert-goers are encouraged to purchase a monthly parking permit for evening and weekend performances. Simply send it with payment to the University Parking Office at the address on the form. The Parking Office will send you a permit valid in all regular faculty and staff parking areas after 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday. The permit is not valid in any of the resident student parking areas, spaces specifically reserved by signage, or events at the Bryce Jordan Center. It’s that simple!
For information regarding parking during the day, campus maps, one-day visitor parking passes, and change for parking meters, please visit any of the parking kiosks on campus.
