Visitor Parking

All vehicles parked on University of Dayton property must display a valid University of Dayton parking permit weekdays 6:00 a.m. - 7:30 p.m., and until 4:30 p.m. on Friday (see hours of parking).  Visitors parking beyond two consecutive weeks or for more than three times per month must purchase a permit.  Employees and students are not permitted to park in visitor spaces.

A visitor permit is required for parking in the visitor parking spaces.  This will allow for the most efficient use and monitoring to ensure space is available for your guests.

All marked disability parking areas are enforced 24 hours daily, 7 days a week. Disability parking permits are not valid in reserved parking spaces (e.g., those designated for "authorized personnel," etc.).

Anyone parking on campus for more than two weeks is required to purchase and display a parking permit.
