Parking Regulations

Parking Enforcement

  • Designated parking areas (lots and meters) are enforced 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. (except Saturdays, Sundays, and University-closed holidays), unless otherwise noted below:
    • Hillside (Lot 4) meters are enforced 24/7 for payment or by daily or weekly permit. 
    • Lots 15W & 16 meters are no parking between the hours of 2 a.m. - 7 a.m. (seven days a week).
    • Lots 7W, 15E, 15W & 16 are enforced seven days a week from  2 a.m. to 4 p.m. for proper permit.
  • Faculty/Staff and Commuter Permits are valid only in Lots indicated with their applicable parking permits.  
  • Residential Lots/Daniell Heights Blocks are enforced 24/7 for proper permit. Residential permits are specific to an assigned lot/block.

Night Parking Ban

November 1 through April 30, between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m., parking is prohibited on campus—whether it is snowing or not. Exceptions:

  • Campus housing residents must park in their designated lot/block.
  • Employees who work an assigned shift may park in an overnight parking space assigned to them by Transportation Services.
  • To request parking during the night parking ban, you may contact the Transportation Services office during normal business hours or Public Safety and Police Services after hours. If approved, you must have a permit or pay to park at the assigned meter area you were given during your request. 
  • Campus visitors with a daily or weekly parking permit will be assigned to either Lot 24 or Lot 26. 

Snow Removal

Transportation Services sends out emails and posts notices in residence halls at least 24 hours in advance when lots are going to be cleared. It is the responsibility of vehicle owners to be aware of these notices and move their vehicles accordingly to avoid being ticketed and/or towed.

Parking for Persons with Disabilities

Designated parking spaces are available to people who possess a valid disability parking placard or license plate issued by the Secretary of State after submitting a Disability Parking Placard Application. 

Please bring your Driver's License and Handicap Placard to the Transportation Services Office to have it registered with your vehicle.

Students needing temporary accommodations should contact Disability Services to discuss options available.

Community parking locations are available to those with a handicap placard without a campus permit - these are free spaces located by the meters on College Ave, Cliff Drive, Hubbell St, Houghton Ave, outside of the Library and in Visitor Lot 27 located by the Memorial Union Building.  Michigan Tech Parking Permits are required to park within any lots (with the exception of Lot 27) on campus. The Transportation Services Office will review permit options with you when you register your handicap placard.
