Guest/Visitor Parking Reservations

Reservations are recommended for all campus guests and visitors.

University issued parking permits are required 7:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in all campus parking lots.

Reservations for the visitor lots are on a first reserve basis.

Reservation requests with less than 48 hours notice ARE NOT guaranteed.


If space is not available in the visitor lots, we can issue a free temporary parking permit for Papa John's Cardinal Stadium and free shuttle service will be provided. 

Pay parking is also available in both the Floyd Street garage and the J.  B. Speed Museum garage.

Reservations must be e-mailed from an official university address.  The following information must be included and submitted in this format.

Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance. Parking for special events and groups will be provided at the Papa John's Cardinal Stadium and permits are required. Free shuttle service is available. It is important to tell any visitors parking at the stadium to allow an additional 15-20 minutes to park and ride the shuttle.

Arrangements for service vehicles, delivery trucks, and vendors are the responsibility of the host department and can help facilitate quick access while minimizing traffic issues. Please check with the parking office for needs beyond 20 minutes next to any campus building.
