Parking Areas

Visitor Parking

Campus visitors should park at the visitor parking lot at 18th and Olive streets. Follow the signs to the Admissions office, located in Aspen Hall. All visitors must sign in at the Admissions front desk.

Guests of students must utilize street parking around campus. Guests are not allowed to park in campus parking lots.

Student Parking

To obtain a permit to park on campus, students must maintain a valid driver’s license, vehicle insurance and vehicle registration. All permit holders are expected to obey all state and local traffic laws and campus traffic regulations.

Student parking permits can be paid for by either purchasing online at or at the cashier's window in Student Academic & Financial Services on the first floor of the Academic Center. The permits can be picked up in Campus Safety & Security once the purchase is complete. Please allow one-to-two days for permits purchased online to be available.

The university provides parking to students on a first-come, first-served basis. The purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee the permit holder a parking space.

On-campus Parking Areas

Please refer to the Denver Campus map for designated parking areas.

Street Parking

There is street-side parking available around campus. Some street parking is time-limited so please pay attention to street signs designating parking. The City and County of Denver is responsible for enforcing parking along the streets surrounding campus.

If you park in the surrounding neighborhoods, avoid parking too close to driveways and intersections as you could be ticketed and/or towed by the City and County of Denver.
