Where can I park?
Parking lots are designated for each of the seven parking categories (Commuter, Contractor/Vendor, Faculty/Staff, Reserved, Resident, Retiree, Stadium Discount). Parking is restricted to the designated lots from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. On class days during Fall and Spring semesters.
Parking will be available for commuter students only (including faculty/staff, contractor/vendor employees, and visitors) at the stadium for a discount fee during restricted hours (7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday on class days. ). In order to park at the stadium, your permit designation must indicate the Stadium "Discount" lot. Shuttle bus service will be provided to the visitor's side of the stadium from 7:45 a.m. - 7:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 7:45 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. Friday; no service Saturday or Sunday. You may move your car into a non-residential lot on campus after parking restrictions end at 4:00 p.m., as long as you do not park in any marked space (reserved, visitor, handicapped, etc.).
Resident students: Parking restrictions have changed for resident students this year. During restricted hours, you will be required to park in your assigned lot if you live in University Village or University Commons; if you live in Bowen-Smith, FLLC, Camilla Hubert, Tiger Place, Bostic, Wright Hall, or Tiger Court, you will be required to park in your assigned lot or General Residential Parking behind Hubert Tech or on the Alexis Circle. If you have concerns that your parking space is too far from your residence facility, please contact Public Safety for an escort from your vehicle to your residence. After parking restrictions expire at 4:00 p.m., you may move your vehicle to any other space on campus, as long as you do not park in any marked space (reserved, visitor, handicapped, service, etc.) Resident students are now allowed to park at the Stadium Discount Lot. We encourage you to purchase your permit as soon as possible for 2016-17, since parking lots will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Otherwise, parking is open to anyone with a parking permit except in reserved spaces and residential lots.
If you are a resident student, you must park in the parking lot based on your parking designation. If you have a reserved space, you may park in any other legal spot on campus that is not another reserved spot. For additional information, please see our Parking Instructions document and Parking Brochure.
