Perimeter parking is located in parking lots on the perimeter of campus. Perimeter parking is available to students with 29 or less completed hours; to resident students enrolled in less than 12 semester hours; to students who applied for, but were denied preferred parking; and to students who choose it. Although those individuals may purchase perimeter parking, perimeter lots are available to any permit type.

Five areas are designated for perimeter parking. They are indicated by the colors brown, gray, and white on the parking map. Area 5-1 is located on the North side of campus. Areas 1-2, 1-4, and 1-7 are located on the south side of campus.

Perimeter Commuter Students

Perimeter Commuter Students will park in the two surface parking lots south of the parking deck in parking area 5-1. These lots will be reserved for commuters between hours of 7 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. These parking areas will become accessible to any permit after 1:30 p.m. and before 7 a.m.

Vehicles displaying perimeter parking permits must use perimeter parking lots between the hours of 7 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Preferred commuter lots may be used between the hours of 1:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. Employee lots may be used between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 a.m., except those employee lots located near residence halls.

Perimeter parking lots are served by a shuttle Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Perimeter lots are also served seven days a week by an evening shuttle making regular stops between the hours of 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.
