The Coliseum Deck is on central campus, and Tompkins Hall is on north campus, but you can walk from the deck to Tompkins in 5-10 minutes (see map below):

There are two ground-floor entrances from the quadrangle side, one on either end of the building.

There is also metered parking on Hillsborough Street in front of Tompkins, but these spaces are usually filled by students.
