Continuing Education & Community Engagement Class Parking Information

Where can I park for my class?

Parking on campus is challenging. Please consider using public transportation. Below, we've outlined parking options for our on-campus and off-campus, daytime and evening students. If you must drive and park, day and evening class instructions vary slightly. Please be aware that parking regulations change frequently; check posted signage carefully.

PLEASE NOTE: Commuter Services is open until 5:00 pm (rather than 6:00) Monday through Thursday, and closes at 4:00 pm on Fridays. Students who need evening parking passes must call before 5:00 to purchase a pass for the evening.

Public Transit

We encourage you to take public transit to your Continuing Education class. For classes in the Annex, the University Trax line (Red Line) stops just northeast of the Annex at the Fort Douglas stop and is a convenient way to arrive. Numerous bus lines also stop close to the Annex Building. UTA is now offering the HIVE Transit (Hive Pass) pass for Salt Lake City residents for a monthly fee. For other routes and transit options please see UTA.

Parking for Classes at Sandy and St. George campuses

At the University of Utah sites in Sandy and St. George, parking is always free and available.

Parking for Classes on Main Campus

Students taking classes on campus that are not in the Annex Building should refer to the Commuter Services Parking Map for lot locations and permit designations. To purchase visitor or semester-long parking passes, please see the Commuter Services website. You can call them at 801-581-6415.
