Check-In & Coming to Campus

We are excited about the new construction projects happening both on campus and Marquette, but navigating campus might be a bit tricky during your visit.  For all Summer Sessions check-in is located in the Gant/Spalding Lobby.  On this page you can view a map on how to navigate to the campus during construction or you can download and print your own copy by clicking here.  Please note that we have been told that the construction will be happening over the summer, but not when. When you visit you may see no construction or you may see all of it, either way want you to be ready for your visit!
