Parking

Metered Parking: There are metered spaces located in strategic places around campus at a rate of $0.25 for 15 minutes. The maximum amount of time is indicated on each meter is 30 minutes. The closest metered spaces to the Gore Center are on Military Memorial, or at the two meters in the parking lot directly ahead behind Jones Hall. Please be sure to keep the meters current as you will receive a parking citation if the meter expires. We regret that the center does not have change on hand for patrons.

Visitor Parking Permit: Visitors may purchase a one day visitor parking permit for $2.00 online by visiting Guest Account or by going to the Parking and Transportation Services office. A visitor pass allows you to park in lots designated for WHITE passes. There is a white pass lot right next to Todd Hall called Jones Lot.

Free Visitor Parking: Free parking and shuttle service is available to visitors in either the MTSU Lot or Rutherford Lot. Both lots are located off of Rutherford Blvd. and require no permit. The Raider Xpress serves the MTSU campus, the routes and times can be found here Raider Xpress.

Disabled Parking: The blue disabled parking spaces throughout campus are reserved for those holding permanent disabled parking permits, including the row behind Jones Hall. Please be sure your tag is displayed clearly.

Accessibility

Getting to the Gore Center

For detailed parking instructions, including the location of disabled parking spaces, go to our page on Directions to the Gore Center.

Todd Hall's accessible entrance faces the Jones Parking lot. Once inside, people using mobility aids will need to take the elevator (which is to the left, down the hall after you enter the building) to FLOOR 1. The Gore Center is located across from the elevator, down the hall. We have large glass windows and a glass door with our logo on it. 

At the Gore Center

Our only public entrance does NOT have an access button, but we have installed a doorbell to the right of the front doors. Please use the doorbell and one of our staff will open the door for you.

Our research tables are wooden and the height from the floor to the table lip is 27.5 inches. Our research room chairs are also wooden, but we have more cushioned seats in other areas of the archive we can bring out for you if needed. There are flourescent lights in the research room.

We encourage you to email or call us about specific accommodations prior to your visit, so that we can meet your needs and make this an enjoyable research experience for you. You may contact our archivists Sarah Calise (Sarah.Calise@mtsu.edu ; 615-898-2632) or Donna Baker (Donna.Baker@mtsu.edu ; 615-898-5202).
