Parking Location
Free parking will be available during the fair in the Southeast Corner of parking lot E-14 (west of the State Farm Center). Look for our event parking flags and park south of the blue line. You must park in the designated lot  E-14 to avoid any parking violations/tickets. Business Career Services will not be responsible for any tickets or tows received for parking in an incorrect parking lot. Metered parking is available around the ARC, but it will be at your own expense. Meter availability is not guaranteed and Business Career Services will not be responsible for any tickets due to expired meters.

Shuttle Service

We will shuttle recruiters from the E-14 Shuttle Lot to ARC. Look for the Starr Limo shuttle vans or buses picking up in the lot. We will run the shuttles continuously from 10:45am to 6:45pm (the last shuttle will leave ARC at 6:45 pm).

All refund requests/cancellations must be made in writing by January 21, 2019, at 5pm (CST). If a cancellation request is submitted after January 21, 2019 at 5pm (CST), no refund will be granted.

Please note that Illinois weather can change at a moments notice. In the case of inclement weather, if the University of Illinois campus is open, then all events will still go on as scheduled and your company’s participation will be at your discretion. Many vendors require advanced payment so no refunds will be issued. In the rare case that campus were to close due to weather, messaging will be sent via email and the event may then be rescheduled.
