Important Parking Information

There is no free parking. Parking on campus requires a permit or payment of visitor parking fees whenever the University is open (weekdays from 5 a.m. Monday until 10 p.m. Friday).

Parking anywhere other than in a marked parking space is illegal.

  • The absence of "No Parking" or "Fire Lane" signs, or lack of curb paint does not suggest that parking is permitted.
  • Enough room for a vehicle to park does not suggest that parking is permitted.
  • You may only leave your vehicle in marked parking spaces. There are no exceptions.
  • The University of North Carolina at Charlotte assumes no liability – under any circumstances – for damaged, vandalized, stolen or impounded vehicles.

Parking is always tight at the beginning of each semester.

Parking can reach capacity during the first two weeks of the semester when nearly everyone is on campus (attending class, buying books, paying tuition, etc). By the third week of classes, traffic and parking patterns settle down.


Accredited Parking Organization sealUNC Charlotte Parking and Transportation Services has earned Accredited Parking Organization certification from the International Parking Institute (IPI).
