Parking and Traffic Impact

No shuttle service during finals and end of academic year.  Shuttle service will stop on Tuesday, May 14, 2024.  Shuttle service will resume on Wednesday, August 21, 2024 (the first day of instruction for 2024 Fall Semester). Please park on main campus.  A valid parking permit is always required.


Traffic is unusually heavy and finding parking is EXTREMELY difficult between 8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m., Monday - Thursday!  Please plan accordingly and consider using the South Campus Garage, situated at 1278 South 10th St. (intersection of 10th and Alma Streets). You can conveniently take the shuttle to the main campus from there. Another option is to leverage the VTA EcoPass for utilizing public transportation.

As a reminder, there is NO Grace Period for Parking.  A valid parking permit is required at all times.
