Free parking is available in the lots and side streets surrounding the BCPA on a first come, first served basis. Activities in the adjacent downtown, campus, and residential neighborhoods mean that traffic and parking congestion can occur, especially at our most popular events. See more information and view a map of the parking lots surrounding the BCPA.

Busses will line up along East street on the east side of the BCPA and drop off students as they reach the front of the line. The students and teachers will enter through the front doors of the BCPA, where they will be greeted by Ushers who will escort each group to their seats.
