Check-in begins at 12:00 p.m. at Alumni Hall. The event will be held in Alumni Hall and Solarium at the Indiana Memorial Union at 900 E 7th Street, Bloomington, IN 47405. Alumni Hall is on the west side of the building right next to Starbucks. Please check in with our team prior to setting up your materials.

Please go to visitbloomington.com/hotels-motels for lodging options as well as maps you may need during your stay.

The Indiana Memorial Union Biddle Hotel and Conference Center is a convenient place to stay during your visit. Reservations can be made here: http://imu.indiana.edu/hotel/.

We also have a corporate rate with Hyatt Place at 217 W Kirkwood Avenue. Please contact us if you need assistance.

We will provide an eight-foot table and tablecloth. You may bring a display that rests on the table or fits within the parameters of your space; however, we cannot accommodate oversized displays, two-sided displays, or other items that would obstruct the aisles where students walk.

Nothing can be affixed (including glue, tape, and thumbtacks) to surfaces including walls, floors, ceilings, and furniture. We encourage you to bring any items that will assist you in promoting your organization including position descriptions, literature, and giveaways.

Parking on campus can be difficult so please arrive early! If you are bringing career fair materials with you, you may drop these items at the IMU circle drive entrance before parking and a staff member will take your materials to your assigned booth space.

Parking is available in IMU Lots 1 and 2. These pay lots are located directly north and directly east of the IMU. Please take a ticket upon entering the lot and a complimentary parking voucher* will be provided in your packet at check-in.

These lots may reach capacity before everyone has arrived, so early arrival will make parking easier. Once the IMU lots are full, a staff member will provide you with a campus parking pass that will allow you to park in the following parking garages: Poplars, Henderson, Atwater, and Fee Lane. Please obtain the pass BEFORE parking in the garage as you will be ticketed without a pass displayed. We are not responsible for parking tickets received on campus.

*Two complimentary parking passes per registration will be provided. Four complimentary parking passes per sponsorship registration will be provided. All other parking costs are the responsibility of your organization.

You may ship your display and materials prior to arrival. Packages must be received no more than three days prior to the event.

Please label your materials as shown below. You MUST include the title of the fair you are attending.
