Drop-off, Pick-up, and Parking:
GSED 2013 will once again be held in the UAB Nursing Building room 1028. The Nursing Building is located at 1701 University Blvd (8th Ave South) between 16th and 18th Street South, right by the pedestrian bridge over University Blvd. Check-in is from 8:00 to 8:30 am. Parents can either park and bring their daughter in to check in, or they can drop their daughter off with GSED volunteers at the corner of 9th Avenue South and 17th Street South (behind the Nursing Building). The volunteers will take the girls to the Nursing Building from there so you do not have to park. Pick up is at 2:30, and all parents must park and come to the Nursing Building to pick up their child. This is for the girls' safety. Please refer to the parking map below which has parking lots colored light blue and the nursing building colored pink. Parking options are as follows:
- Any parking lot labelled "LOT 15" at UAB. You can park in any available space, and you will not be ticketed. You may also park in the 16th street parking deck.
- The 9th Avenue parking deck - there is a small fee to park in this lot. It is 2 dollars if you park less than 1 hour. It is a short walk to the Nursing Building.
