Directions, Parking, and Accommodations

Directions to University of Wisconsin Law School

Please plan to arrive downtown at least 15 minutes early as it is often difficult to find parking. We recommend the State Street Campus Garage located at 415 N. Lake Street, Madison, WI 53715 as there is almost always available parking there.

Otherwise you can check out the visitor parking options page for real-time on-campus parking availability. While Grainger Hall (007) is the closest visitor parking to the Law Building, all of the "East Campus" options listed are viable.

Accommodations: We have set up a room block at the Fluno Center, which is located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus in close proximity to the Law School and other campus/Capitol Square attractions.

You may reserve a room online here, or by calling 608-441-7117. The rate is $139/night for rooms with double queen beds (not including tax). Below, please find additional information regarding the room block. 

  • The rooms may be reserved for the nights of February 16th and 17th. The Fluno Center does not require a deposit, but you will need a personal credit card to complete your reservation.
  • If you reserve by phone, please don't forget to mention the group name "Wisconsin Statewide Diversity Pre-Law Day 2017" to receive the group rate.
