Parking Instructions

Convenient parking is available in the 250 car parking deck attached to EJ Thomas Hall, the North Campus Parking Deck, or Lot 34 behind the Law School. The 1100 space North Campus Parking Deck has entrances from both Buchtel Avenue and Forge Street. Lot 27 (directly across from the stage door) and Lot 45 (at the end of Hill St.) will be residence hall only parking – no longer available for EJ Thomas Parking. Permits will have an “R:” on them. This will result in there being a greater number of spaces in the North Campus Parking Deck on event nights.

Please Note Pre-paid parking passes are honored at any of the above locations, but DO NOT guarantee a parking spot; however, if you are a member of EJ Thomas' Flying Balcony Club, parking spots are reserved in the EJ Thomas parking deck.
