Our goal is to provide safe, orderly, and fair parking for employees, students, and visitors to
our campus. We strive to make parking on campus as convenient as possible, while promoting safe
movement of vehicles, providing for pedestrian safety, and assuring free and continuous access to
buildings and walkways for pedestrians and emergency vehicles.
We encourage you to take advantage of services provided to reduce the number of vehicles being
parked on campus. Parking Services offers Carpool
and Occasional Parker permits, while
Transit Services provides
extensive, free bus services.
