  • Day Meter Permits:
    The walking distance from Hampton Inn to Noyes Lab is 0.62 miles. Walking is encouraged but if you do not think you can walk that distance or should the weather become bad, everyone will be receiving three 'Day Meter Permits' that may be used at University meters only (not city meters). University meters are designated by the block "I" displayed across the top of the meter. They become valid when you scratch off the month, day, and year and place the permit on the rearview mirror with the date displayed toward the windshield. These are one day use permits only. At the end of the workshop we will ask that everyone turn in any unused Meter Permits to MIST. Please look at the Maps for directions on available parking on campus with your parking pass.
