Parking Meters for Visitors, and Vendors

For special events in the Performing Arts Center, Health and Physical Education building, and Academic Core building, visitors can park on campus for $10. Two ways to Pay: At parking meters located at the Performance Arts Center parking lot entrance on Guy R. Brewer Blvd across from the Academic Core building or Online at Visitors Parking. If purchasing online, please be sure to show the officer in the parking lot upon entry.

Faculty, Staff, & Students with valid parking permits will have priority parking over visitors.

In addition, vendors who have long-term work on campus will be able to request the purchase of parking permits as follows: $50 for monthly parking; $250 for six-month parking, and $400 for annual parking.  

Students, Faculty, and Staff will continue to be eligible to purchase parking at existing discounted rates.  The College community will always have priority parking over visitors and the Office of Public Safety will be managing the availability of spaces for anyone with a campus parking permit. 

Parking on the College campus is at the vehicle operator's risk. The registered driver is responsible for the use of the vehicle on campus. The College is NOT responsible for loss or damage to any registered or other vehicles, their contents, or equipment. The payment of parking fees provides only for the privilege of parking on campus, on a space-available basis.

Parking privileges are only granted once the required documentation is validated by the Public Safety Office. Upon validation only will the parking permit be issued to the vehicle/permit holder. Parking Permits must be displayed within the Permit Holder's Vehicle with the College Logo and ID Number facing outwards, ideally from the rearview mirror, or some other suitable, secure location in the vehicle. If there is no suitable, stable, or secure front-facing surface in the holder's vehicle to display the pass, it's recommended that you store the permit securely in the glove box, console, etc, before placing the vehicle in motion. Lost or stolen parking permits must be reported to the New York City Police department.

Parking permits are Not Refundable or Replaceable. If a permit is lost or stolen, a new permit must be purchased at full price.

Faculty, Staff, and Students are prohibited from parking private vehicles in areas designated and marked for "CUNY Authorized Vehicles Only."
