This lot is subject to closure with or without notice. Closure of this lot is not an excuse for parking out of your assigned zone.

RESIDENTIAL STUDENTS ARE PROHIBITED FROM PARKING IN THE MITCHELL CENTER LOT until 3:45 p.m., pending other event related restrictions or closures.

How to Choose a Permit  

Students living off-campus will choose a zone to park for the entire academic year (fall-summer semesters). They should choose a zone most convenient to their classes and activities taking place before 3:45 p.m.

All on-campus resident students, including sorority, fraternity, and Grove residents, must obtain a Resident zone parking permit with the exception of Gamma residents who must obtain a Gamma permit. Obtaining a permit other than the allowed permit will result in disciplinary action and possible vehicle immobilization.
