Driving Directions and Parking

For your convenience, parking permits are provided for free parking to employers participating in on-campus interviews and during all Career Center events, and will be emailed before your visit. Visitor/vendor parking permits are valid in all legal parking spaces unless otherwise restricted to a designated zone or area (note the restrictions on the front of the permit). Parking in an accessible (handicapped) parking space will require a valid State Accessible parking permit in addition to a visitor’s permit. Parking is accessible to the general public after 6 p.m.
