Carpool Zones are designated areas for carpooling. Anyone with a General student or faculty/staff parking permit who carpools to campus can park in this area. Carpooling is when two or more people ride in the same vehicle. The carpool zone will be open 6am-11am on Monday through Thursday. During all other times, the area will be regular general permit parking.

How it Works Arrive to a carpool zone with at least one other person in your vehicle between the hours of 6am and 11am on any day between Mon – Fri. An attendant from Parking Services will be present between 6am-11am to ensure that only those who carpool are allowed to park there. Those driving alone will not be able to park in the Carpool Zones during these hours.
