Parking and Transportation


  • Special Events

    Parking and Traffic Impacts

    Multiple events occurring in May and June, along with several planned construction projects, will impact traffic circulation and parking availability. Visit CUInfo or TCAT's website and check your email for special alerts and notifications from Transportation Services. Event-related road and parking lot closures can be found on the Event Parking & Transportation page.

  • Vehicle Registration 

    It's required!

    Community members who bring personal cars, motorcycles, or motorscooters to the campus must register their license plate with Transportation Services, whether they buy a parking permit or use short-term options. Vehicle information must be kept current. Register a license plate and update vehicle information.

  • Parking Compliance

    Permit and Payment Requirements Enforced

    Students, faculty, and staff returning to campus should visit to check their permit and vehicle information before parking, as restrictions and Night/Weekend Parking Rules are enforced throughout campus. Community members should also be prepared for upcoming event impacts on traffic and parking. Fine-due citations are issued in response to permit and payment requirement violations.

Transportation Services manages the commuting, parking, and inter-campus travel demands of Cornell University. Services include Campus-to-Campus motorcoach travel; fleet car rentals and leasing for business-related needs; department-owned vehicle repair and detailing; and transit pass, parking, and compliance program administration.
