Sundays: Request party: 8 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

At The Crossing (corner of University Ave. and Charter St.; map), in the basement; enter through the back stair door.


Parking Information: There is some parking available in the back (entrance off Charter). Please do not park in any of the spots labelled for The Crossing. There is additional parking at Lot 20 (off University, west of Charter). Note that as of September 2012, Lot 20 now charges $1/hour for parking. The UW has announced a $40/year permit that would allow (otherwise free) evening access to Lot 20, but it's not clear how to buy it yet. Lot 56 and Lot 54 are on Charter and are free during dancing times. See this map for details and additional options.
