Summer Orientation Parking

Campus Parking

**The system for campus parking has been changed as of August 21, 2017. The system has moved to an online app and paying for parking is now done entirely by the hour. Business and Finance has more details on the update!

Summer Orientation participants may park for the day in either of the two Campus Parking Structures or any other on campus lot for the hourly rate of $1. A permit is required for each day.

  • Map of campus parking
  • You may park in any stall except marked ADA spaces or stalls marked "Reserved”.
  • If you park in restricted parking spaces without the proper permit or in any area designated as Reserved, your vehicle may be ticketed.
  • Parking is limited so you may wish to arrive early to secure a spot in the structure.
  • Overnight parking is not permitted in the Parking Structure unless you are staying in on-campus accommodations. If you are staying in on-campus accommodations, University Housing and Food Service has provided Residence Hall Parking Map (PDF) (pdf).

You may use City metered parking at:

  • The corner of Normal and West 2nd Streets
  • The downtown City Parking Structure at Salem and West 3rd Streets.
  • Both options are a short walk to campus. Be sure to bring quarters as pricing and time limits vary.

Disabled visitor parking spaces require the display of a valid DMV placard. ADA stalls are located on the first floor, there is no elevator in the parking structures. Parking at a city meter with a disabled plate or placard is free.
