We encourage using public transportation or ride share services such as Lyft or Uber when attending popular events at Macky. Ride share drivers have free access to the front of Macky for dropoff and pickup.

Parking around Macky is limited and usually a fee is assessed. Please allow extra time when driving to an event as you may have to park several blocks away from the building and walk. ADA and accessible parking is available on Pleasant Street, right in front of Macky.

For an interactive map and real-time updates and parking options please visit CU Campus short-term parking map.

Euclid and Folsom Parking Garages, or the Pennsylvania Avenue Lot are your most convenient parking options. Parking behind the Armory is also available for highly-attended events. Consider using ParkMobile, which allows payment by phone or smartphone app, sends expiration reminders via text messaging, and offers the option to extend parking time on your phone (subject to parking lot time limits.)
