Undergraduates

All students may buy contract parking in one of the following lots: West Resident Lot, West Commuter Lots, South Stadium Lot, Greenbriar Lot, or, provided space is available, the Central Campus Garage – lower level B2. Only one vehicle is permitted per student. Contract Parking Rates are determined by lot location.  Upperclassmen acquire places in North Colleges Lots and South Colleges Lots through college jacks. Students who do not acquire parking in the college lots may put their name on a waitlist for when a spot becomes available. 

Students with contract parking may park in their lot during weekdays and in specified additional faculty/staff lots after hours, on weekends, and on University holidays. Please refer to the Permit Rights page for more details on after-hours parking.

O-Week
Fall Break
Dead Weeks
Finals Week
Academic Winter Recess
Spring Break
Summer Break
And other days classes are not taught
