Location & Parking

Business College Complex

This information was current for WLD 2018; check back for updates in future years.


Please note that a major construction project is taking place around the World Languages Day site. Use caution in entering the building and walking around the area, always sticking to open sidewalks and marked crosswalks. You can learn more about the construction project here. There are no road detours associated with this construction.


The street address of the Business College Complex, where World Languages Day is held, is 632 Bogue Street, East Lansing, MI 48824.

Note that if you park in any of the ramps or lots designated below, it is most likely that you will enter the building through a door marked "Eugene C. Eppley Center." It also appears as "School of Hospitality Business" on the Google map above. The two buildings are connected and registration will occur just inside the Eppley Center doors. The address of the Eppley Center is 645 N. Shaw Lane, East Lansing, MI 48824.

Car Parking

Individual cars may be parked in Ramp #1 (also marked as Lot #51 on some maps), the ramp immediately west of the MSU College of Law on the Google map above. This is a change from last year, but a return to the pre-2017 ramp for attendees who remember prior years. Ramp #1 can be accessed from either North or South Shaw Lane. Parking is free, and no special permits or passes are required. Since the event is on a Saturday, you MAY park in spaces that normally require permits on weekdays; however, please read posted placards very carefully to make sure that any given space is not also reserved on weekends (e.g., some leased spaces, University vehicle spaces, spaces for persons with disabilities).  No cars may be left in any lot or ramp between 2:00am-6:00am.

Bus Parking

Buses may park in Lot 97, located south of Service Road off Bogue Street, or off campus at their discretion. Due to construction, drivers should NOT drop participants directly at the Business College Complex. Participants should be dropped at the CATA Bus stops nearest to the Business College Complex on E. Shaw Lane or S. Shaw Lane, then chaperones should accompany participants to the Business College Complex using marked crosswalks and sidewalks.  A map of the drop-off and parking areas and other information for bus drivers is available here. Please have your driver contact us with any questions.
