The closest parking available is the Pittsburgh Public Parking on Frew Street. Alternatively, a few other parking lots that provide convenient access to Scott Hall are the CIC GarageGates Garage, and the East Campus Garage. If you park in the CIC Garage, we recommend that you park on G4 toward the top. There is a plaza you can walk across to access the first floor of Wean Hall. Walk through the lowest door (both vertically and horizontally) and out the other side. You will now be in the mall area, and you will see Hamerschlag Hall on your left. Go past it, and you’ll see the diagonal walkway leading to Scott Hall. This is the 5th floor entrance. If you’re looking for the Bosch Spark Conference Room, proceed to the opposite side of the building and the conference room will be in front of you at the end of the hallway.
