Like most campus buildings, the best way to access the new Student Fitness Center and McCormick Hall is as a pedestrian.  However, there is limited street parking available as well as in the South University Street Parking Garage.  Both options are fee based.

The main entrance for the programming side of the facility is on the south side just off the large green space. The main entrance for the academic areas is just off the Quad.
