Evening and Weekend Parking

  • Several main campus parking lots don’t require a permit (free parking!) weeknights from 5 p.m. - 7:30 a.m. and on weekends (starting 5 p.m. Friday evening - 7:30 a.m. Monday morning). The largest such lots are 169, 308 and 436. Always read the signs at lot entrances, or call PTS at 303-492-7384 for more information.
  • If you need campus access in the evenings or at night (for classes or work), a PM permit may benefit you. 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.
