Arriving & Parking
On weekdays between 8:00AM and 6:00PM, parking is primarily dedicated to students, faculty, and staff. Clients and guests attending conferences or events on weekdays may not find parking immediately adjacent to the Campus Center. However, parking will be available in one of the many lots on campus within a short walk to the building. Parking immediately adjacent to the Campus Center should be readily available on weekends and evenings.
The parking fee is $6.00 per vehicle. The fees cannot be waived, and free-parking is not provided any day of the week. Parking spaces cannot be blocked, reserved or roped-off to accommodate special guests. Parking vouchers, for distribution to guests, can be pre-purchased at an additional fee from the Campus Center.
