Morning/Evening and Weekend Parking

  • Several main campus parking lots don’t require a permit (no-charge parking) weeknights from 5:00 PM - 7:30 AM and on weekends (starting 5:00 PM Friday evening - 7:30 AM Monday morning). The largest such lots are 169, 308 and 436. Always read the signs at lot entrances, or call PTS at 303-735-PARK (7275) for more information.
  • If you need campus access in the morning, evening, or weekends (for classes or work), an AM/PM permit may benefit you. AM/PM permits may provide closer parking to your campus destination than the free lots, and they are available in several time increments. Visit our AM/PM permits page.
