Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 campus parking space counts

In order to know that parking supply is sufficient for demand and to plan for future parking facilities, Parking and Transportation Services conducts thorough space counts every semester. All parking designations are counted — residents and commuters, facutly/staff, visitors, ADA parking, etc. Because students are the population for whom most of campus parking is designated, the following data focuses on decks and lots open to those with student permits.

*Counts taken Monday – Thursday, over a two week period of normal class schedule (no holiday/break).

** Student parking space total. Does not include Faculty/Staff gated access, reserved, ADA/van accessible/handicapped, motorcycle, metered, visitor or discount remote parking. 

Note: CRI Deck I is a mixed use facility on every level (available equally to Commuters, Faculty/Staff and Visitors and, after 6 PM, to those with Resident permits.) 

The take-away

  • Parking areas closest to the academic center fill during peak class times. Always has, always will!
  • Overall, this semester averages more open spaces than were counted last Fall. That's a bit of a surprise because historically, there are more cars on campus in the Spring.
  • NEW this year: Parking Availability mobile website, with real-time available parking counts for all parking decks (surface lots do not yet have the space counting equipment required). Find out more here.
