Visitor Parking

Downloadable Campus Map | Interactive Campus Map

With a parking permit obtainable at no cost from the Campus Safety office, you can use any "Visitor" or "General" parking space on campus. There is a parking lot behind the Library, and another close lot west of Bell Field at the main entrance to campus.

Street parking requires no permit and can also get you quite close to the Library. If you park near Campus Road and Armadale, walk through the campus gate and the Library is straight ahead. You will need to walk around the building to find the entrance.
