Commencement Parking

As we near commencement you may be interested in where to park. 

If you're a student, parent, or other celebrant for your student we've got a wide range of parking options for you. Look for the yellow areas in the map below. Avoid areas marked "reserved" or "state parking". The largest areas available for parking are:

  • Near Lowry Woods at Oakland & Locust
  • Between Jones Hall, Parliament Village, and the soccer fields just north of Administration from Bell to Frame St.

ADA parking is provided generally located north of Pioneer Hall (Chapel & Bell) or in the visitor lot (Bell & Administration)

If you're a faculty or staff member please park in the purple areas in the map below. This includes Oakland Garage (2nd floor and up to avoid reserved spaces), BSM, South of Visual Arts and along old main st.

Visitor Parking

Visitors can get a temporary parking pass at the Information Booth on Administration Drive or at the Parking office in Oakland Complex.

Resident Parking

Welcome to campus residents! Move in week is here and you may find parking a little tight with various areas blocked off to help get you moved into your new home. This week if you can’t find parking in blue (Resident) painted parking lots look for open parking in the black (all decal) parking lots.

We expect a new Residential parking lot near the soccer fields close to Parliament village to open on Monday. This parking lot will add 517 additional parking spaces for our Residents on campus. As a reminder parking with a valid decal in any lot will be honored after 4pm on Friday until 7am Monday morning. If you park outside a resident or all decal area over the weekend make sure to move your vehicle Monday morning.

Fall 2019 permits are on sale now.
