New! U-Pass Program

Carlow students have access to unlimited, fare-free rides on any Pittsburgh Regional Transit system through the newly mobile U-Pass program.

Student Parking Permit Application

Students may apply for a parking permit using the link below. The application is typically available at the start of the Fall and Spring semesters. You can also apply in person by visiting the Campus Police Office in Frances Warde Hall.

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 A and 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. 

  • Park your bicycle in racks behind A.J Palumbo Center and in front of Dougherty Hall. Bicycle parking regulations are in effect at all times, including evenings, weekends and holidays. Walk your bicycle through congested pedestrian areas, narrow walkways and ADA ramps.
  • Do not park or store bicycles in residence halls or against any other fixed object other than bicycle racks. 
  • Rent a bike two blocks from campus through Healthy Ride Pittsburgh.

If you have questions, give us a call or visit us on the 3rd Floor of Frances Warde Hall.
