Parking & Transportation
If you will be using a car while you are here and plan on driving to school, you must have a parking permit. Parking permits have limited availability and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Typically, registration opens two or three weeks before the first day of classes. Students will log in to claim their parking spaces at that time and pay the parking fees. There are a limited number of parking spaces reserved for law students and they tend to be claimed quickly, so you will need to be prepared. Law students enrolled in the LLM, SJD, VIR, and Exchange Student programs will be considered as 2nd or 3rd year students and therefore eligible for on-campus parking during their first year of study.
