Welcome to the Parking Office!

Parking on the Colorado College campus is limited and in great demand. While the College does all it can to provide adequate parking, being a residential campus in the downtown community often make parking a challenge. Parking is a scarce resource and there is not enough parking for is limited to on-campus residential parking for second, third, and fourth-year students, staff, and faculty.  

Our goal is to help to provide and maintain a safe and secure environment where academic pursuits may flourish in accordance with the established goals of CC. This goal is accomplished by providing parking to the community through the management and maintenance of parking facilities and providing safe transport of our most important resource (people) from far parking lots to campus.

Our campus is private property, and the college determines all motor vehicle regulations.  Our parking regulations help ensure a fair and orderly system for all who operate or park vehicles on our campus. These regulations also help ensure emergency vehicles and service vehicles have immediate access to all campus locations. Voluntary compliance is encouraged; however, individuals who show disregard for CC parking regulations will receive appropriate citations. Violations will be distributed when vehicles are not parked according to college regulations. Repeated violations may result in immobilization of a vehicle, towing without notice, loss of parking privileges, and/or a referral to conduct. 

Parking lots are permit required and enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including block breaks AND weekends, so please be sure your vehicle is in its assigned lot with your hang tag visible.

Our staff stands ready to assist you with all your parking and transportation needs and our objective is to provide the best customer service possible to every individual we serve. 

For the 22-23 Academic Year, Vehicle and Permit Registration will open for Staff/Faculty on Monday, August 15, and on Monday, August 22 for Students (Sophomore, Juniors, and Seniors only).
