The parking permit is for Lot L only. Parking elsewhere may result in ticketing or towing. An exception may be made for those with a handicap placard, see the next section for details.

Leave Light Rail at Franklin Avenue stop. Follow the street that loops around the buildings on the right, stay on that road and you will see the large intersection that needs to be crossed. Your goal is to navigate to 20th Avenue South which is the bridge that crosses over the Interstate. You will want to be on the right-hand side of the bridge.

Turn onto 8th Street at the Augsburg University sign/tennis courts. Proceed on 21st Avenue towards Riverside Avenue, Oren Gateway Center (OGC) will be on your right.
