Drop Off: Buses may come down Seventh Street to central campus to drop off students. Buses will be allowed past the guard shack on 7th Street, however, they are NOT allowed to turn right once past the guard shack. The designated drop-off is in front of Woodburn Hall. It is a short one-block walk to Ballantine Hall where all home rooms will be located.
Bus Parking: Buses may park free of charge in the IU Stadium Parking Lots located on 17th Street between Dunn and Fee Lane. Buses may NOT go behind the Indiana Memorial Union for any reason. There is too much construction and no turn-around.
Car Parking: Parking is free at the IU Stadium. From the stadium, you may ride a campus bus free of charge to the center of campus or your competition. In addition, you may park for free (weekends only) at the Poplars Garage located off Sixth Street between Grant Avenue and Dunn Avenue or the Atwater Garage located between East 3rd Street and Atwater Avenue. For the central part of campus, there are two "pay" parking lots located next to the Indiana Memorial Union.

Socks must be crew length or longer. The top of the foot and the ankle MUST be covered by shoes and pants. Prohibited shoes include flip-flops, Crocs, Toms, and ballet flats. If any part of the foot or ankle is visible, the student will not be allowed in the lab. Pants must cover the shoe and may not be tucked into boots.

3. Dress Code Violations
In the event that a student violates the dress code, the student has 15 minutes from the start of the event to obtain the proper attire. Students are allowed to borrow attire from friends and teammates. The partner may start the experiment on time, assuming he/she has followed the dress code. If the student cannot find replacement attire within 15minutes, the student may not enter the lab. Their partner may continue the experiment.
