Commuter parking zones have been designated as Commuter Blue or Commuter Red. Commuter Blue parking zones comprise most of the traditional commuter parking zones that are closer to the core of campus and academic buildings. Parking lots that are further from the center of campus or at the satellite facilities such as the Jackson Avenue Center and the South Oxford Center, are designated as Commuter Red parking zones. In order to encourage better utilization of the available parking inventory, Commuter Blue will be priced higher with Commuter Red zones being a lower cost option. Several of the Commuter Red zones are also served by campus shuttle services which operate Monday thru Friday from 7:00am to 7:00pm during the regular Fall and Spring semesters.

A limited number of Commuter Blue parking permits will be available each year to help increase the likelihood of finding a space in the Commuter Blue designated areas. These permits will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. When Commuter Blue permits are sold out, you will still have the option to purchase a Commuter Red permit.
