Visitors during the business day can enter the Strickland building from the courtyard through the double doors directly beside the water tower (right next to Cuban Revolution) that say “Reed and Strickland buildings.” At the back, to the left of the security console, you will see the elevator. Take this to the 3rd floor and it will open right into our space.
If you enter from Blackwell Street, you’ll see a door that is right next to a sign for Cuban Revolution. Over the door, it says “Reed and Strickland buildings”. When you come in, there’s an elevator to the right. Go to the third floor and it will open directly into our space.
Two hour street parking is available on many of the streets around the American Tobacco campus.
The ﬁrst level of each parking deck is now automated using the Parkmobile system. Hours are Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm. The ﬁrst two hours are free, although you are required to register your car at either the paystation or the Parkmobile app (the app adds a 30 cent surcharge) If there is a special event such as a Durham Bulls game or a performance at the DPAC they will be charging a flat fee for parking in both decks, however the hourly parking on the ﬁrst levels are usually available for visits to the main campus.
