If you are a resident of the Salt Lake City area, staying off-campus with a friend or in a hotel, or if you are staying in the Benchmark Plaza Apartments and will need a place to park a vehicle, APhA has reserved a parking lot across the road from the University Guest House and Conference Center. All APhA Institute attendees (not staying at the University Guest House and Conference Center) may park in Parking Lot 69 on the APhA Institute Parking Map.
Parking on The University of Utah Campus is strictly enforced. You will receive a ticket if you park in the University Guest House parking lot (Parking Lot 63) or in any other parking lot on campus if you do not have parking tag. Vehicles in Parking Lot 69 will not need a tag as the lot will be designated as APhA Institute only.
