Parking Information:

Information about parking locations and a map of the University of Dayton campus are online at https://udayton.edu/publicsafety/parking/parking_map.php.

Please park in either B or C lots, as they are closest to the Kennedy Union. You will not need a permit if you arrive after 4.30 on Friday. However, if you do arrive on campus before 4.30 on Friday afternoon you will need a temporary permit available at the C lot attendant’s booth, or at the main campus parking booth. (These are located just off Founders Lane near the entrance to C Lot or near the intersection of L and College Park Drive near the main library building (2 on the college map); the booths are marked with a purple “i” icon on the campus map.) No permit is required to park in either B or C lot on Saturday. If you arrive before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, notify the attendant at either the C Lot or Main Campus Parking Booth that you are at UD for the Ohio Academy of History meeting.

Restaurant Information:

This website (https://www.tripadvisor.com/RestaurantsNear-g60785-d5790031-University_of_Dayton-Dayton_Ohio.html) provides a long list of restaurants near the University of Dayton campus, including those on the Brown Street Corridor. Below are a couple of lists of recommended restaurants from that website – some within walking distance; others in driving distance, but not too far.

Within walking distance of campus on the Brown Street Corridor; Recommended (close; good food; sit-down; faster service):

  • Bibibop Asian Grill
  • El Rancho Grande
  • North Village Chinese Restaurant
  • Ginger and Spice
  • Jimmie’ Ladder 11
  • Butter Café – great place on Brown Street, but only open for breakfast and lunch.

Oregon District (will need to drive; parking can sometimes be an issue):

  • Jay’s Seafood
  • Dublin Pub

Others (with warnings):

  • Carillon Brewing Company – Historic Brew pub on the grounds of Carillon Park. Will need to drive. Limited menu. Can be crowded on the weekends.
  • Pine Club – Finest dinning in the area, also within walking distance (near Dayton-Oakwood border); limited parking – however, no reservations, cash or check only. $$$$$
  • Cocos – Better dining, long walking distance, but parking available. My experience has been VERY slow service. $$$

Note: there are any number of fast food restaurants as well, many within easy walking distance.
