Permit Enforcement Dates | Summer & Fall 2024

Summer parking enforcement begins on Monday, May 13, and continues through Friday, August 9. 

While parking options are generally more plentiful over the summer, campus parking lots and structures remain on control for permits. Some lots and structures require specific permit types 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so please pay attention to signage at the entrances.

Metered spaces and paid visitor lots also remain on control over the summer and require payment.

Please be aware that even when lots are not controlled for permits, they are still monitored for other parking violations including, but not limited to, parking in fire lanes, parking on yellow lines, and unauthorized parking in ADA-accessible areas.
