Directions and Parking

Visitors who arrive in Syracuse by plane, bus, or train, will find taxi service convenient for the short drive to campus.  Visitors who drive to campus and take the NYS Thruway east or west to Syracuse should exit at Interstate 81 and proceed south.  Northbound and southbound travelers should also follow Interstate 81 to Syracuse.

From Interstate 81, exit at Adams Street and proceed up the Adams Street hill to the light at Irving Avenue.  Make a right on Irving and proceed to the end.  At the end of Irving Avenue make a quick right on East Raynor.  You will see options for three surface lots:  Fine, Standart, and Stadium lots.  If space is available, the Stadium lot is the closest option to the College of Law. 

View a campus map for parking lot locations.
