Weekend/Overnight Parking

After 5 p.m. on Friday, visitors can park in any yellow space in surface lots or garages (excluding the DUC) throughout the weekend. To open garage gates, you will still need to pull a ticket but you won’t be charged upon exiting. Permits will again be required starting 7 a.m. Monday.  

If you are visiting the northeast side of campus (The Village or Millbrook Square Apartments), you can use the Snow Way Garage. If you are visiting near the South 40, yellow spaces are located in the parking lot in front of the Alumni House at Forsyth and Wallace.

Monthly Permits

Monthly permits are also available and provide parking in yellow spaces from the start to the end of one calendar month. These cannot be purchased by payroll deduction and are nonrefundable. Learn more
