FREE Parking

  • At City of Dayton meters along Fourth Street after 6 p.m. and on weekends
  • In Lot B (as available) across Fourth St. from Building 2, after 3:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and all day Sunday.
  • Lot A in Fifth Street Parking Garage; pay upon exit. Monday -Thursday until 10:30 p.m.; Fridays until 6:00 p.m.; CLOSED Saturday and Sunday.

Remember that because Throwback Thursday performances start at 7 p.m., the parking garage remains open for your convenience. We suggest you park on the third floor (west) and use the overhead walkway to avoid stairs, weather and traffic. This walkway brings you directly into Building 3; turn right and follow the overhead signs into Building 2. There’s an elevator to the first floor for Blair Hall or you’re already near the Black Box Theatre (Room 2411) with access from the third floor.

$10 Parking under Building 12 – varied hours depending on event – please refer to signage at garage opening.

Handicapped Accessible parking is available on a limited basis on the building 10 loading dock (adjacent to Building 2) for night and weekend performances. You must have a current handicapped license plate or hang tag and call Sinclair Police at 937-512-2700 if an officer is not visible after parking your car on the dock. If you do not have a cell phone, there is a phone inside the building 2 doors to dial ext. 2700.

Please be aware that other campus buildings and overhead walkways are closed and locked when classes are not in session on weekends and holidays. For pedestrian safety always use the marked crosswalks when crossing Fourth Street.

Bus Parking

Buses are permitted to park at bagged meters if they have made special arrangements with Campus Police two days prior to attending the event. Please contact campus police via phone 937-512-2700 for specific information.
