Parking

Visitors are encouraged to obtain a Visitor Parking Pass, available from Parking Services at 201 Ukrop Way or from the circulation desk at Swem Library ($2 per day, $10 per week). With a Visitor Parking Pass, you can park in the garage at 201 Campus Drive and at any campus space designated for visitors, faculty/staff, or students (unless restricted "at all times"); and, if appropriate, at any space reserved for the disabled.

Metered spaces, very few in number, are also available to visitors. Campus parking is regulated and closely enforced from Monday at 7:30am through Friday at 5:00pm Other times, unless the spaces are subject to specific restrictions, campus parking is open to the public.

In many areas adjacent to the College, street parking is subject to certain restrictions. Read the signs carefully to avoid being ticketed.

Nearby free and paid parking is available in the Merchants Square area opposite College Corner.
