Best Practices for Parking and Traveling to Campus
- Please do not park at metered spots on Campus (if you need to retrieve a new parking pass from Baker Center, park at a metered spot at the bottom of Baker, feed the meter for a couple minutes, get a new parking pass and then move to an authorized parking lot)
- Please do not park in an unauthorized lot (Dark Green lots are the only acceptable lots for Orientation parking. Please refer to the Campus Map and your parking permit for locations)
- Remember to display your parking permit before leaving your vehicle
