Parking Permits

All parking on the University of Denver Campus is either permit or fee-based. As such, there is no free parking on campus, and anyone parking on campus must either display a valid permit or pay the hourly fee. We also have an agreement with the City of Denver prohibiting University parking on streets adjacent to campus, a policy we adhere to in the interest of lessening negative impact on the surrounding area.

Fortunately, we make acquiring a permit a simple, straightforward process, and are here to help with any questions you may have.
