Night/Weekend Parking Restrictions

While some areas are available evenings after 5 PM and weekends to all comers, most central campus parking lots—and all residence hall lots—are restricted to payment and/or proper permit holders. The surest way to avoid parking in violation of the rules (and getting a ticket) is to read the signs for permit and time restrictions before you park.
