Internet mapping services will usually get you to CSPS Hall, or to the address 1103 Third St SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. If you don’t have access to those apps, or are on foot or bike, try the driving directions that follow below.
Although this historic Third Street entrance and staircase are often open, we encourage all visitors to use the Courtyard entrance that was added in 2011. This entrance can be reached from either Third Street, or from the alley that runs between Second and Third Streets SE. It’s on the backside of CSPS Hall, and is adjacent to the CSPS Hall parking lot. The Courtyard entrance opens onto a ground floor Commons that incorporates our box office, restrooms, stairs to the second floor, and an elevator that takes passengers to the second floor, theatre, and stage levels.
