Campus Parking

Campus parking

Visitor parking

Visitors may park at meters and pay stations located throughout campus, including Folsom Parking Garage and Euclid Parking Garage. Open 24/7, both garages are “pay by plate” pay station lots where you need your license plate number when you pay. To find campus metered visitor parking lots, go to and look for the pink areas on the campus parking map. These lots accept payment by coin, MasterCard, Visa and American Express at pay stations located in each lot. Be sure to read the posted parking signs in all parking lots for specific details.

The app will send text and email alerts to notify you of parking expiration times and allow you to add additional time, if necessary, without returning to the meter. Visitor parking permits for some campus lots can be purchased on a space-available basis. The cost of a one-day permit is $9, and a one-week temporary permit costs $16.

To inquire about a permit or to obtain a copy of the CU Boulder Parking and Transportation map, visit Parking and Transportation Services at 1050 Regent Drive, call 303-735-PARK (7275) or email Their offices are open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year, and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the summer.
