Transportation and Parking for the Symposium

The Symposium is held at Temple University, this year at the Howard Gittis Student Center. The Gittis Center is at the corner of N. 13th St. and W. Montgomery Ave. It’s a two block walk from the Cecil B. Moore stop on the Broad Street Subway line and for those of you who live in Philadelphia that’s an excellent way to get there.

For those of you who will drive, you can get directions from Google by using the map on the symposium page.

In general it’s possible to find street parking around Temple on the weekend, so that is a good, and in most cases free option.

Temple also maintains a number of paid lots that you can use if you prefer. The Cecil B. Moore lot is right next to the Gittis center and probably the easiest choice. It costs $3 per hour, so you’ll probably end up spending $12 – $15. If that lot becomes full, the next best option is the Liacouras Garage is attached to the Liacouras Center and is the best choice if you want to park indoors. It costs $17 per day.
