There are a few options for parking during the PEAK conference. The easiest and free routes include parking to the north of the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center that sits at the corner of Grand and 22nd street in Laramie. This parking is free and there is a shuttle stop on the east end of the building that will take you to main campus (the Wyoming Student Union) which is where the conference is being held. The shuttle will also return you to the Gateway Center to pick up your vehicle and then head to the Alice Hardie Stevens Center (603 E. Ivinson St., Laramie, WY 82070) which is where the dinner and silent auction will be held Thursday night. If you choose this parking option, you will want to make sure you get on the brown shuttle, which is called the Campus Commuter Route.
We also encourage you to use the free shuttle lots that are located at in between 22nd and 30th off of Willett Drive in Laramie. These shuttle lots will also provide a shuttle to and from the Wyoming Student Union. If you choose this option, you will want to use the red shuttle, the Union Express Route or the brown shuttle, the Campus Commuter Route.
