Event Parking

The Department of Parking Services provides parking for students, faculty, staff and visitors to campus. The department strives to provide equitable, quality service to the community by providing timely, efficient, and fair customer service for any and all events held on the University of Denver campus.

All parking spaces and visitor areas on the University of Denver campus are subject to special event use and require Parking Permit holders to properly display their permit at all times or be subject to additional special event parking fees.

Special events may interrupt customary parking and traffic patterns. During special events all parking lots, parking meters, and traffic flow may be controlled by either a University of Denver Parking Services representative or an independent contractor. Individuals or departments conducting special events on campus should contact Parking Services at least 10 days in advance of the event to coordinate their parking needs.
