Women in Engineering ~ "Exploring Engineering at Purdue" ~ Travel Information


Travel Information

West Lafayette is approximately 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis and about 125 miles southwest of Chicago off I-65.  Parking is available in the Grant Street Parking Garage, directly across from the Purdue Memorial Union on State and Grant streets (You need to take a ticket to get into the garage.  We will validate parking.  If you park in a garage that doesn't force you to take a ticket, it's not the Grant Street Garage and you'll likely get a parking violation). 


The closest commercial airport is in Indianapolis. 


Stewart Center is adjacent to the Union.
