Auraria Campus Maps
The closest parking is in the Holly Lot, which is at 7th and
Curtis, adjacent to the Arts Building. Additional parking is
available in the 7th Street Parking Garage.
Driving to the Holly Lot: The Holly Lot, which is closest to
the Arts Building, is located just off 7th Street and Curtis,
between Colfax and Auraria Parkway, with entrance via Curtis
(just off Colfax, by the CCD Confluence Building). After parking
your vehicle, proceed to a parking kiosk; you do not have to
put a receipt on your dashboard. You will need to enter your
license plate number if you pay the regular $6.50 daily fee,
or enter the code on your pre-purchased discount voucher. Parking
is good until midnight, but if you leave and re-enter, you will
need to pay again to park.
Driving to the parking garage: The parking garage is located
on 7th Street between Colfax and Auraria Parkway, with entrances
via either Walnut Street or Lawrence Way (the Lawrence Way end
is closer to the Arts Building). As you enter the garage, the
gate will rise, with payment taking place upon exit. You will
pay either $6.50 (regular fee) or pay with a pre-purchased discount
voucher. Parking is good until midnight, but if you leave and
re-enter, you will need to pay again to park.
Walking from the parking garage to the Arts Building: The Arts
Building is located at Curtis and 9th, which is southeast of
the parking garage and adjacent to the Holly Lot. From the parking
garage, head east on Lawrence Way (toward the King Center) and
then head south along the front of St. Cajetan?s, the large
stucco event center (formerly a church). The Arts Building is
directly east of the St. Cajetan?s entrance.
Getting there via light rail: There are two light rail stops
near Auraria Campus. The one at Colfax and Auraria is a bit
closer than the other option. From there, head north on the
main throughway. The Arts Building will be on your left, just
past the West Classroom Building and directly across from the
Auraria Library. If you enter under the overhead walkway connecting
West and Arts, there is a stair to the right and an elevator
to the left. The other option is the light rail stop at Auraria
West Campus Station, 1250 5th Street. From that stop, head east,
cross 7th street (by the parking garage), and follow the directions
above to the Arts Building.
Locating Arts 295: The workshop will take place in Room 295,
which is on the second floor of the Arts Building. There are
two elevators in the building, as well as two stairways, and
Room 295 is closer to the west side of the building. Follow
the room after you come up to the second floor. There will also
be signs in the building to guide you to the workshop.
Restaurant information for the nearby area will be provided
at the workshop.
