Learning Innovation: American Tobacco Campus


American Tobacco Campus
334 Blackwell Street
Strickland Building, 3rd Floor
Durham, NC 27701

How to find us

Visitors during the business day can enter the Strickland building from the courtyard through the double doors directly beside the water tower that say “Reed and Strickland buildings.” At the back, to the left of the security console, you will see the elevator. Take this to the 3rd floor and it will open right into our space.

If you enter from Blackwell Street, go through the door that says “Reed and Strickland Buildings.” When you come in, there’s an elevator to the right. Go to the third floor and it will open directly into our space.


Two hour street parking is available on many of the streets around the American Tobacco campus.

The first level of each parking deck is automated using the Parkmobile system. Hours are Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm. The first two hours are free, although you are required to register your car at either the paystation or the Parkmobile app (the app adds a 30 cent surcharge). If there is a special event such as a Durham Bulls game or a performance at the DPAC they will be charging a flat fee for parking in both decks, however the hourly parking on the first levels are usually available for visits to the main campus.
