Parking on The University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) campus is limited and in great demand. While the University does all it can to provide adequate parking, limited space, increasing enrollment and new facility construction often make parking a challenge.
Our responsibility is to help to provide and maintain a safe and secure environment where academic pursuits may flourish in accordance with the established goals of UCCS. This goal is accomplished by providing parking to the community through the management and maintenance of parking facilities and providing safe transport of our most important resource (people) from far parking lots to campus.
Parking regulations help to ensure there is an orderly system in place for all who operates or parks a vehicle on campus. The regulations also ensure that emergency vehicles and equipment have immediate access to all campus locations. Voluntary compliance is encouraged; however, individuals who show disregard for UCCS regulations will receive appropriate citations.
Valid permits are required to park on campus. The ticketing times for permit-related violations are: Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. while school is in session. Permits are NOT required on week-ends, interim periods, or holidays when the campus is closed. All other violations are enforced 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
UCCS also operates the Mountain Lion shuttles from the 4 Diamonds Sports Complex and the Internal Circulator shuttles from Alpine Village to Timberline Village at Sunset Creek, with stops at the Recreation Center and the Lodge during the fall and spring semesters. All of our shuttles operate on diesel fuel, are equipped for wheelchair access, and have bike racks. These shuttle services are provided to all University students, faculty, staff, and visitors free of charge, and serve most major campus buildings. Both the 4 Diamonds shuttle and the Internal Circulator operate from 7:05 a.m. until 10:35 p.m. Monday through Friday and run on a 10-15 minute schedule.
Our staff stands ready to assist you with all your parking and transportation needs and our objective is to provide the best customer service possible to every individual we serve. Please do not hesitate to call our office at (719) 255-3528 if you have any questions concerning parking-related issues.
