If you plan to park frequently on campus, consider buying a parking permit. A lot will be assigned according to your living arrangement. Permits must be purchased online or in person at Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) and a pick-up location is announced for each semester. Campus parking meters are intended for short-term use. Maps of campus lots may be picked up at PTS or viewed on their website. PTS offers many options for university vehicles, the Buff Bus shuttle, the faculty/staff Eco Pass, and car share programs.
As a CU-Boulder student, you are part of the university and Boulder communities.

Sexual assault is against the law. It is specifically prohibited on campus and in the university community. The university’s definition of sexual assault encompasses sexual contact, sexual intrusion, and sexual penetration without consent. Acquaintance rape accounts for the majority of rapes committed, and includes situations in which a person is without the physical or mental capacity to consent (often due to being under the influence of alcohol or other drugs). Violators can be arrested, charged with a crime, and may face university discipline.
Excellent downhill ski areas are a relatively short distance from Boulder. National forest and park service lands are open to cross-country skiers wherever there’s snow. Maps of national forest and park locations are available at retail stores specializing in mountain sports. Wherever you go, be alert to snow and weather conditions. Remember that storms might approach quickly during the winter, and the State Patrol might require chains or adequate snow tires for traveling on mountain roads. Drive and ski carefully!
