parking lot


Temporary parking is designated in the Stadium parking lot. Students who have a B lot permit should park directly in the B lot gravel parking lots, next to the Stadium and WellCat Health Center parking entrance. Here you will find a map of all available parking on campus that also highlights our G (General) lots which are available for parking should B lots fill up. You will need to purchase a parking permit if using the Stadium lot on Friday or after 5 pm. The map also indicates which spaces are for employees only, and therefore not eligible spaces to park in.

You can find which parking lots are open for parking within the Campus Map(opens in new window). If you need to park in our G lots, check out the parking website to be led to the link to pay for parking.

If you need accessibility help reading the guides above, please contact our office at 530-898-6325.
