Open Parking Returns to the Danforth Campus

Danforth Campus students, faculty and staff –

The Parking and Transportation team will again be shifting to “open parking” operations. From June 1, 2021 through August 15, 2021, parking in yellow permit or visitor designated spaces on the Danforth Campus will be allowed without the use of a permit or payment.

The open park policy will be in place to help employees who are returning to campus over the summer months.

As a result, faculty and staff will not receive payroll deductions for 2020-21 Danforth Campus parking permits during the months of June and July. Additionally, students will receive refunds to student accounts, which should be reflected toward the end of June. 

Please note that the team will continue enforcement of red permitted spaces, reserved spaces, accessible spaces, and fire lanes throughout the Danforth Campus. During this timeframe, any vehicle parked in a red designated space will need to display a red permit at all times.

Please contact the team with any questions at or 314.935.5601.
