A variety of parking options are available for concerts at Severance Hall, including guaranteed pre-paid parking passes (purchased through the Ticket Office or via this website) for many but not all events.
CAMPUS CENTER GARAGE The Case Western Reserve University Campus Center Garage is located directly adjacent to Severance Hall (parking entrance is off East Boulevard), with stair and elevator access to Severance Hall. Event parking in the Campus Center Garage can be purchased for $11 per vehicle when space permits. However, the garage often fills up well before concert time and only patrons who purchase pre-paid parking passes are ensured a parking space. Pre-Paid Parking for the Campus Center Garage can be purchased for many concerts in advance for $15 per concert by calling the Ticket Office or through this website. Pre-paid parking guarantees you a space, but availability of pre-paid parking passes is limited. HOW TO BUY PRE-PAID PARKING If you are purchasing online via this website, you will have the opportunity after selecting your concert tickets to add pre-paid parking (if pre-paid parking is available for your performance) to your order. Please note that each pre-paid parking pass is for a specific date and concert). Parking can also be purchased through the Ticket Office by calling 216-231-1111.
Limited additional event parking is available in the Case Western Reserve University Lot 1 off Euclid Avenue across from Severance Hall, or at the University Circle Lot 13A on Adelbert Road, and at the Cleveland Botanical Garden parking garage on East Boulevard. Space at these lots may be particularly limited during weekday daytime hours. Some on-street parking is also available, but often fills up well before curtain time.
Severance Restaurant at Severance Hall is operated by Marigold Catering and features contemporary American cuisine in an elegant setting. The restaurant is perfect for a quick bite or leisurely dinner before the concert, or post-concert offerings on select evenings.
