Directions & Parking


The Office of Testing Services is located on the second floor (Room 245) of John E. Thomas Hall at 287 Rivers St. on the edge of the Appalachian State University campus just behind the Holmes Convocation Center. You can locate John E. Thomas Hall ("JET Bldg.") on the campus map at Parking and Regional Maps are also located on this site.


During normal business hours, Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 5:00 pm, campus visitors (including test takers) are required to park in the Rivers Street Parking Deck. This facility is located just one block down the street from the JET Bldg. Parking fees begin at $4 after the first half hour and accrue for each subsequent hour with a maximum of $16 per day. Additional information about Visitor Parking on our campus can be found here.

If you are testing on a Saturday, you may park for free behind the JET Bldg, but please note that only the front door facing Rivers Street will be unlocked on the weekends.

In the fall, parking on Saturday football game days can be difficult. Please call the Appalachian State University Parking and Traffic Dept. at 828-262-2878 on Friday for game day parking options.
