Street Parking in front of JCI is free after 5pm and on weekends. There is also a paid parking ramp above the building. We recommend downloading the app, Parkmobile to pay for meters without cash if you're coming during 8am - 5pm.
JCI has ample seating for you to wait for your student during lessons or rehearsals with WiFi available. Civil House Coffee Co is two doors down and a great optional place to hang, or you could make use of the Kalamazoo Valley Museum (1 block away). If you have other kids with you who need a place to play or work on homework, we've got that too.
