Parking & public transportation options

Student parking

There are limited parking spaces on campus. Students who live on campus are not eligible for a parking permit.  If you plan to commute to campus, please complete a parking permit application. Please know completion of the application does not guarantee a parking spot on campus. As an alternative, consider traveling to Carlow by way of public transportation. 

Fall 2020 students

Parking application information for Fall 2020 will be emailed to all enrolled students in August .

A valid Carlow University parking permit must be displayed visibly in each vehicle when parked in a campus lot. A car without a displayed tag could result in a ticket, and there is a $25 charge for a lost tag. Student overnight parking is prohibited in Lot B.

Parking on campus for non-university business is prohibited and will result in revocation of parking permit.
