Parking

Visitors to the iSchool should plan to park in visitor parking in the Union Parking lot during daytime, weekday hours. After 4pm on weekdays and all throughout weekends, visitors may park for free in Regent’s Parking Garage (subject to change on game days). Visitors may park and pay at meters and in cashier attended areas located throughout campus, and pay the prevailing rate as posted. All meters are enforced 7am – 10pm, Monday through Friday, excluding University observed holidays.

Most parking lots are for use by permit holders only. If you do not have a permit, follow the green signs displaying a large letter P. These parking areas are for visitors. Please read signs carefully. Failure to follow the parking guidelines will result in a parking ticket. Each parking lot on campus has a sign at the entrance stating restrictions that apply to that lot. Additional signs within the lots may state further restrictions.
