Staff/Faculty Parking

The University of Colorado Denver Downtown Campus parking program has been significantly and increasingly subsidized by the general fund. This subsidy has resulted in a reduction of funds available to maintain the buildings. The downtown parking program must be supported more fully by parking revenue. However, in doing so the rates for parking permits in the University of Colorado Denver garages downtown are still maintained below current market rates.  

There is limited Staff/Faculty parking in the Lawrence Street Center, CU Building and Business School. Availability may vary based on current demand for parking permits.

Monthly permit parking is based on a calendar month. 

New accounts are pro-rated on a half calendar month basis only, depending on when the account is activated. 

Parking is paid monthly via a payroll deduction. Please visit the Facilities Office in the Lawrence Street Center to request parking. 

Parking access cannot be loaned, leased, borrowed or in any way transferred from one person to another. Such transfers may result in the revocation of parking privileges.

Staff/Faculty Permit Rates​

Regular permit parking: $148/month 

Day parking within regular business hours: $133/month 

Tandem parking (with two participants): $101/month
