Recommended route from DIA: Travel on Pena Blvd. to I-70 west. Stay to right and exit I-225 south to Colo. Springs. Stay on I-225 to I-25 north. Exit I-25 at University Blvd. south. The center of the DU campus is just two blocks south of I-25 and University at University and Evans.

Alternate route from DIA: Travel on Pena Blvd. to I-70 west. Stay on I-70 to I-25 south.  Exit I-25 at University Blvd. south (205B). This route takes you through the downtown area and has a greater potential for highly congested traffic.

Continue one block past the fifth traffic light at East Iliff Avenue (Lamont is on the southwest corner of the intersection of University and Iliff) until you reach East Wesley Avenue. Turn right onto Wesley and the Newman Center for the Performing Arts parking garage is located on your immediate right.

Parking at Lamont: Lamont's parking garage is located directly south of Lamont. Do not turn at Iliff. Continue south on University one more block to Wesley. Turn right on to Wesley and then into garage. For our scheduled audition days parking is free so drive through the gate and park on an upper level.
