First Time on Campus
Parking is prepaid across campus except in the Student Union and Lubar Hall garages. These garages are cashiered meaning that parking is paid for upon exiting the parking structure.
(See "Parking in the Union Garage" below)
Prepaid parking is enforced Monday-Friday, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Student Union and Lubar Hall Garages:
Fees are enforced Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m.
Fees are enforced on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
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, meaning that you pay as you exit for the time you are parked.
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.

- Sciences Lot off Kenwood Blvd.
- Cunningham Lot off Hartford Avenue
- Northwest Quad garage off Hartford Avenue
