If you have materials leftover after the fair that need to be shipped, the campus mail center located next to the Manley Student Center can assist you. Please have a return label prepared for the shipment. If you are sending a package over night prior to the day of the fair, please understand you are at risk of not receiving the box until midday, as our post office does not open until noon. 

Transportation/Directions/Parking
Parking fees are not included in the registration fee.  Parking may be limited due to other activities taking place on campus. The fee for both the Spelman and Morehouse parking deck is $3 per day (cash preferred). The closest parking deck to the Manley Center is located on Spelman’s campus. Get directions to campus.

If you are planning to use a GPS system to direct you to campus, it’s best to use either 420 or 440 Westview Drive S.W. Atlanta 30310 as the input address. That address will bring you directly to our more easily accessible Westview/Lee Street entrance. Upon entering the campus, there is always a security guard on duty. He or she can direct you to the Manley Student Center.  Please review the campus map prior to your arrival.

Wi-Fi
Complimentary wireless Internet will be available. However, please be cognizant that the connection may fluctuate throughout the day.

Outlets
There are a limited number of outlets on the concourse. Furthermore, many tables will not be in close proximity to the outlets. If you happen to be situated at a table near an outlet, you will need to bring your own extension cord to secure electricity.  

Spacing
Spacing between tables will be limited. As a courtesy, please do not bring elaborate displays as there may not be sufficient room for them.

Set-Up Time
You are welcome to begin setting up your display table at 9:30 a.m. in Manley Student Center. 

Accessibility
THERE IS NO ELEVATOR IN THE MANLEY STUDENT CENTER!! You will have to climb a number of steps or walk around the Manley Student Center to enter through the back entrance to gain entry to the upper concourse. You will be responsible for getting materials from your vehicle to the Manley Center. Unfortunately, assistance may not be available.
