"C" Lot Permits

Vehicles linked to a "C" lot permit may be parked in surface lot "C" spaces (i.e. indicated on red signs) only on the perimeter of the north and south academic campus. Some locations in which "C" parking spots may be available are listed in the section below. Note that "A" and/or "B" spaces may be included in the same lots as "C" spaces, but those with a "C" permit are only permitted to park in "C" spots. 

Parking Locations

  • Discovery Park Lot south of Gates Road and Nimitz Drive intersection (most reliable lot)
  • Lot northwest of the Córdova Recreational Sports Center
  • Lot east of Wood Street Parking Garage
  • Lot north of Ross-Ade Stadium
  • Lot on Sheetz Street southwest of Dauch Alumni Center
  • Lot south of Dauch Alumni Center parking lot near Grant and Harrison Streets

"C" lot parking is denoted in red on the parking map, and locations may be added or removed throughout the year.

Free CityBus shuttle service is provided to individuals with a Purdue ID.

Students may not drive or park vehicles on the north academic campus between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

"C" Garage Permits

Vehicles linked to a "C" garage permit are only provided access to "C" garage spaces in the specific garage indicated on the permit. For example, Grant Street Parking Garage permits are valid only in that garage. However, "C" garage permits are also valid in any space posted for "C" permits in surface lots.

Returning Permits

If a student becomes ineligible for a Harrison Street Parking Garage access card at any time for any reason, it must be returned to Parking Facilities. This includes those who originally lived outside of the 1.5-mile commuter radius and then later moved within those defined boundaries. No pro-rated refunds will be issued after March 1.
