Parking and Construction Update
Construction and infrastructure improvements continue around campus. Anticipate construction-related impacts to traffic, parking, and transit around the Cantor and the Medical Center. View map for more parking and traffic information.
Parking for Cantor Visitors
Weekend parking is easy because A and C permit spaces are open to visitors and free! Weekend parking is also free in spaces designated for visitors.
Weekday parking may be difficult due to construction projects eliminating nearby parking. Weekday visitor parking costs $1.50 per hour until 4 pm (pay at the black boxes). Parking weekdays after 4 pm is free. Weekdays after 4 pm A and C permit spaces open free to visitors as well.
