Parking for Classes on Main Campus

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.

Students taking classes on campus 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.
