Campus Parking

Being in an urban environment, the amount of space dedicated to parking is limited. During peak periods, finding a parking space on the main campus can be difficult.                      

We encourage people coming to campus during peak times to consider using alternative transportation and/or the Park & Ride Lot across from Spartan Stadium. For more information, see Other Services.
