Please provide bus drivers with drop-off and pick-up times and locations. A campus parking maps is listed below. Buses should drop-off students on Reserve St. in front of the Dreyfus University Center (#40 on Campus Map). Reserve Street is a two way street (except between Clark St. and Main St.).

Students need to be picked up on Fourth Avenue in front of the Health Enhancement Center (#5 on Campus Map) by 2:30. Students will be escorted to this location between 2:15-2:30 p.m.
NOTE: Buses need to follow the above rules so buses do not interfere with the city's school busing system at a nearby school on High Street. In addition, there is a busy pedestrian crosswalk by the marque sign on Fourth Avenue. Also, please do not block the pedestrian crosswalks by the Heath Enhancement Center or by the Dreyfus University Center.

Chaperones who drive individual students or small groups can park in Lot X (X on the Campus Map) for $0.50 per hour for the day. At the beginning of the day, you may park in Lot R across from the Dreyfus University Center. We suggest that you move your car to Lot X prior to the end of the conference and be standing at the Health Enhancement Center to receive your group. Then, walk your group to your car located in in Lot X at 2:15-2:30 p.m. Do not ask your students to walk to other locations to be picked up. All students will be escorted to the Health Enhancement Center at the end of the day and chaperones need to be at this location to receive their group.
Note: Drop off locations are set to provide safety to your students. No student is without an escort on the UW-Stevens Point campus during this program. If you choose to not follow the outlined program and pick up location as set in the program, we cannot guarantee their safety of your students.
