Carlow University has limited parking spaces, including some for commuter students. Students who live on campus are not eligible for a parking permit. 

Temporary Covid Parking Policies for Spring 2021

Parking is adjusted for the Spring 2021 semester due to changes on campus surrounding COVID-19.

Adjunct Faculty will follow the same procedure as in the past, they will present a completed application along with their Carlow ID to Dispatch and be issued the adjunct paper hang tag that is good for the semester.

Employees with current hang tags do not need to do anything. 

Current hang tags will be honored through the end of the semester and new yearly stickers will arrive soon for distribution.

Current employees who are requesting a pass that never had one in the past will need supervisor approval and will be given one for the fall semester only at this time. New employees will be handled on a case by case passes during on boarding, based on the number of hang tags available.

Parked cars, some with snow on them, in a small lot on the Carlow campus.

Completion of an application does not guarantee a parking spot. As an alternative, consider traveling to Carlow by bicycle or public transportation.

Additional parking information

A valid Carlow University parking permit must be displayed when parked in campus lots. A vehicle without a displayed tag could result in a ticket. There is a $25 charge for a lost tag. Overnight student parking is not permitted in Lot B. Students, faculty and staff should not park in residential permit parking zones without a permit issued by the Pittsburgh Parking Authority. Residential permits are tracked by license plate number and enforced by license plate recognition software.

Alternative parking options

There are several public parking garages and lots within walking distance of campus.
