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, increases in enrollment and new facility construction often make parking a challenge.
Our goal 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.
Our parking regulations help ensure a fair and orderly system for all who operate or park vehicles on our campus. These regulations also help ensure 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.
For a $2.50 per hour/$12.50 per day fee, visitors may park in lots 220, level 3 (numbered stalls) visitor parking area of the Gateway Garage, and level 1 (numbered stalls) visitor parking area of the Alpine Garage. For students, staff, and faculty, valid parking permits are required to be displayed in most lots throughout campus, including the free (500 series) parking lots (effective Fall 2018 semester). For permit restricted lots, permits must be displayed during the fall, spring, and summer semesters on Mondays - Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Permits are NOT required to be displayed on weekends, between semesters, or on holidays when the campus is closed. All other violations such as fire lanes, loading zones, handicapped spaces, etc. are enforced 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. UCCS is not responsible for loss or damage to any vehicle or its contents while parked or operated on any university property.
Free visitor parking is also available at any 500 series parking lot at or near the Ent Center for the Arts building (5225 N. Nevada Ave). Free shuttles are also provided about every 10-20 minutes to transport passengers to and from the main campus. Shuttles are only in operation during the fall, spring, and summer semesters, Mon-Fri from 6:40a to 10:30p. UCCS also operates other on-campus shuttle routes to connect other outer perimeter lots to the main campus. All of our shuttles are equipped with wheelchair access and bike racks.
