We do not provide parking for this event, so we strongly encourage that you carpool with others from your district to reduce the cost of parking or take alternate transportation. The Euclid Autopark is no longer available for public parking while construction occurs in the area. There is a public lot across the street (lot 204), but spaces are limited and daily parking rates are around $22/day. If you arrive early enough, you may find parking in the nearby neighborhoods at no cost, but please keep in mind that some of those neighborhoods are 2 hour only parking and the do ticket and tow if cars are parked for too long. Please also be careful about which public lots you park in. Most parking lots on campus are only available for public parking after 5pm. You can find more information regarding parking on campus by going to our Parking and Transportation website at http://www.colorado.edu/pts/parking-services/visitor-short-term-parking.
