Like most universities of our size, parking is limited in some
areas. University visitors may park in any hourly Pay
Lot or Parking Meter, located throughout campus. Visitors parked
in these areas pay the posted parking rates. (Campus tours are
conducted from the E.
Carroll Joyner Visitor Center located at 1210 Varsity Drive
at the intersection of Western Boulevard and Varsity Drive.)
Parking permits are enforced from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday except on Official University Holidays. Please pay close attention to signs as some lots have extended enforcement hours. Visitor permits are not valid in paylots.
Summer 2013 Construction
Summer is the time of the year when we pave roads, resurface parking lots and attempt to complete as many maintenance projects as possible since we have fewer students and generally less activity on campus. We want you to enjoy your visit, so please take a quick look at the construction map so you'll be aware of areas impacted. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
