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.
