Added amenities include an enlarged lobby, indoor box office and restrooms on the main floor. During this time however, Emens will using two alternate entrance locations indicated on the map below as the ‘Hargreaves Music Entrance’ (MU) and ‘Arts & Communications Entrance’ (AC).
The Emens Box Office will also be temporarily relocated across the street to the Sursa Hall box office. On the night of events, box office staff will be available at the MU and AC entrances two hours prior to each performance to assist with will call and additional event sales.
Circle Drive, located adjacent to Emens Auditorium, is police controlled. Individuals who have difficulty walking long distances can be dropped off along Circle Drive. The driver will be asked to vacate this area immediately in order to allow access to the shuttle buses and others needing this drop-off service.

Guests also may park in the McKinley Avenue Parking Garage (near the Music Instruction Building, across the street from Emens) at McKinley and Ashland Avenues, or in the Student Center Parking Garage near McKinley Avenue and Gilbert Street.
