TSU PARKING GARAGE and NATATORIUM
Parking Garage address: 3001 Blodgett, Houston, TX 77004
The parking garage is located at the NE corner of Ennis and Blodgett on the west
side of the TSU campus.
Approaching from UH:
* Travel west on Elgin,
* take a left on Ennis (you've gone several streets too far if at Dowling St.),
* left on Blodgett (the parking garage is immediately on your left),
* U-turn still on Blodgett, and
* turn right into the parking garage.
Approaching from 288 Southbound:
If traveling away from downtown southbound on 288, exit Southmore, make a Uturn
over the freeway, and stay on the feeder road. Turn right onto Blodgett,
pass through the signal light at Ennis (the parking garage is immediately on your
left), U-turn and turn right into the parking garage.
Approaching traveling north on 288:
Exit Southmore but travel through the Southmore signal light and stay on the
northbound feeder road. Turn right onto Blodgett, pass through the signal light at
Ennis (the parking garage is immediately on your left), U-turn and turn right into
the parking garage.
WALKING DIRECTIONS FROM GARAGE TO NATATORIUM
I normally park on the lower level as close to the entrance as possible. Walk out
the north side of the parking garage (opposite side of entrance - notice the pay
kiosk on your left), turn right and walk about 100-meters. The first building on
your left just past the hike-n-bike trail is the Natatorium. There is a small
pedestrian ramp leading to double glass doors that lead directly onto the pool
With your parking stub, walk back to the parking garage - visit the pay-station
kiosk and pay your parking - approximately $2. Sometimes the "cash" feature
doesn't work, so bring a credit card. Return to your car, drive to the exit, and the
gate arm will swing open after depositing your paid parking stub.
