Not all lots are open to public parking!
Several University parking lots are available to visitors, students and the general public. Pre-payment of applicable parking fees is necessary across campus. See campus parking map for exact locations.
Parking in the Union garage
The most convenient parking on campus for visitors is the centrally located Student Union garage. Enter the Union garage from E Kenwood Blvd. This is a cashiered parking structure, that is, you pay as you exit for the time you are parked. Cash, MasterCard, and Visa are accepted. ATM Cards, Checks, and Panther Card Gold Account are not acceptable forms of payment. See the parking rates page for current rates.
Other public parking areas
Other public/visitor parking lots and garages are controlled by pay stations, centralized multi-space meters. It is very important that you take notice of the information on the sign in front of the space in which you park including space number, time restrictions (if applicable), and payment instructions.
Student and public parking areas are located throughout the campus.
