  • We have two elevators, one on the Northwest side of the SUB (beside the bookstore) and one on the Northeast side (behind the glass cases by the Allen Theatre).  Keep in mind the elevators will have long wait times.
  • Consider not bringing a stroller/wagon because of the long wait times at the elevators, and we will have activities on multiple floors.  We do have plenty of seating for anyone needing to sit out for awhile.
