Your student may have several questions about Parking at the Anschutz Medical Campus – most of those are addressed here!
Student parking is $36/ month. Short term weekly parking is $10/week.
You can pay in the Parking Office each month by cash, credit card or check. By the Fall Semester 2011 you will be able to pay your parking on line at the parking website.
You can pay for one month, multiple months or a full semester. Monthly parking can be prorated for half of a month as well. The cutoff date is the 15th of the month.
Parking can be arranged at anytime. However, the monthly rate is only prorated for half month increments.
You must notify the Parking Office in advance of your intent to cancel parking. If you do not notify the Parking Office you will continue to be billed.
Parking access is added to your Student ID. Upon entering the gate to the parking lot simply wave your ID a few inches away from the reader. The gate will open.
Notify the Parking Office of any additional vehicles. They will be added to your account.
Carpool parking is available. You must sign up for a carpool badge in the Parking Office. All carpool participants must be registered in the carpool. You will receive a carpool parking card. The parking access will not be on your ID Badge. The carpool ‘card’ will allow for 24/7 access to all permit lots. Other carpool participants must present their ID in person at the Parking Office.
You should park in a visitor parking lot and notify the Parking Office immediately. They will verify your account and you will not be issued a citation that day.
There is more than adequate parking available on campus for the permit holders. However, sometimes the most desirable parking space may not be close your destination. The permit parking lots that will typically have available parking later in the mornings are Evergreen, Leadville and the Henderson Parking garage. In the worst case, if all parking is truly taken, and can be verified by parking staff, you may park in a visitor lot – however you must notify the Parking Office immediately to avoid being issued a ticket.
Following a few of these simple parking rules and regulations will help to ensure you do not experience difficulties when entering or exiting the parking lots.
Allow only one vehicle per card access into the parking lot. Following too close or “tailgating” into a parking lot behind another vehicle will cause in difficulties or delays upon trying to exit.
If the gate will not open when you present your ID badge please do not try to push the gate open manually but rather park in a visitor lot and immediately notify the Parking Office of your dilemma. If you are already in the parking lot and trying to exit please call the Parking number posted at every exit.
Use only the designated drive paths in and out of parking lots. Other methods could potentially damage landscape areas, curbs and/or sidewalks.
Park within the designated linesof the parking lot to help maximize the use of the parking spaces for everyone on campus.
Aisle ways and rows are designed to allow a safe flow of traffic in and out of the parking lot. The widths also allow emergency vehicles when necessary. For these reasons, please do not park at the ends of rows or aisle ways.
Your parking access is assigned to your ID badge only and is intended for your use exclusively.
If you are ever unsure about a parking issue contact the Parking Office right away.

Bike racks are available near the entrances to all major buildings on campus. Enclosed bike lockers are located on the ground floor of the Henderson Parking structure, and are available for daily use only, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Students are encouraged to register their bicycle with University Police – in the event of a theft, this can help get your bike returned to YOU if it shows up in a pawn shop, found abandoned, etc.
You may post your information in the Parking/Transportation Office on bulletin board/s on either campus.

Visitor and daily-pay lot maps can be found on our web site Permit lots are also mapped at this site.
Students who work nights and weekends on the Anschutz Medical Campus, or have business at the campus after hours, have the option of free access to the gated parking lots if they did not already participate in the parking program (students paying for parking have 24/7 access to gated lots).
After Hours access begins at 6PM and ends at 5:59 a.m. the following day. You may be ticketed if you enter a permitted lot at 5:59 a.m., and remain in the lot during regular business hours.
Those who do not pay for a parking permit and would like night and weekend access to the gated lots must still register in order to have their UCD ID badge activated to allow entry into the parking lots. There is a $10 charge to activate your Anschutz Medical Campus ID for this after-hours program. Please visit the Parking Office to fill out a registration form.
Please bring your Anschutz Medical Campus ID badge and complete description of your vehicle including license plate number when you register for any of the parking options listed above.
