A variety of summer parking options for vehicles, motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters are available for you to purchase online on the Parking Services (PS) website. Customer Service Specialists are available to help determine the best option for your summer parking needs. Sale dates are posted on the Parking Services website.
If full-time summer parking is more than you need, the university offers hourly parking. Parking payment machines and meters are available throughout campus and pay-by-phone parking is available via ParkMobile. Simply download the smartphone app, look for the green signs at parking payment machines, and never use a payment machine again!
Night and weekend access may be purchased for those who need parking outside normal business hours. For more information about hourly parking options, see the Campus Parking map.
Getting To and Around Campus
No matter how you get to campus—on a skateboard, via bike, by bus, or in a car—CU Boulder’s Environmental Center, Transportation Services and Parking Services are working to make your commute safer and more efficient, with a lower impact on the environment.
If you don’t have your own bike, all CU Boulder students are eligible for free Boulder BCycle (electric bike share) annual memberships. Learn about free CU Boulder student annual memberships on the campus bike sharing page and sign up for the monthly Bike Newsletter.
