Parking overview

Parking on campus requires payment.

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).

Spaces are always available. 

Parking spaces near the center of campus fill up quickly on weekdays between 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., but there are plenty of open parking spaces located further out.
