CU SOM Resident Parking

​​The only Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC) on-campus parking that the CU Parking Office controls are the non-hospital permit lots (marked in blue on the AMC Parking Map).  If Residents already have, or will have, parking at one of the hospitals (CHCO or UCH), then they most likely do not need additional parking in a non-hospital AMC lot.  Residents should check with their programs regarding the type of parking they need before trying to obtain non-hospital AMC parking.  If a Resident does need non-hospital AMC parking, depending on the source of funds for their training position, a parking permit may be provided at no cost to the Resident. In certain situations, the Resident may be required to pay the monthly parking fee (if so desired) where departmental funds are not available.
NOTE: If you ONLY need hospital parking at CHCO and/or UCH and are unsure how to go about obtaining it, please contact your program coordinator.  DO NOT contact the CU Parking Office, as hospital parking is not under their purview. 

Program/Department-Funded Parking:
If parking on the AMC campus is paid for by the Resident’s program, the Resident will be required to pay an activation fee and should work directly with their program coordinator to coordinate payment of this fee, as well as pick-up and return of hangtags. 

Self-Funded Parking:
If parking on the AMC campus is NOT paid for by the Resident’s program, the Resident will need to obtain an entry card/parking permit through the CU Parking and Transportation Services Division. Permit parking on the AMC campus costs a monthly fee, and can be deducted monthly from the Resident’s pay with an option for pre-tax. Application for an entry card/permit may be made at the Parking Office located in Building 500 on the 1st floor, left of the food court and across from the student lounge. Hours are Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. In addition to the monthly fee, a one-time non-refundable activation fee is also required. If parking is suspended for more than a six month period, the Resident will be required to pay the activation fee again. Parking access is added to the Resident’s CU ID badge. 
Please contact the Parking Office for monthly and activation fee information.

AMC Nights and Weekend Parking:
Free nights and weekend parking in AMC permit lots (M-F: 6am-6pm; Sat & Sun: all day) is available to all Residents for a one-time non-refundable activation fee.  Please submit this activation fee in person at the CU Parking Office.

Veterans Affairs Medical Center Parking:

University of Colorado owns the Resident parking lot at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (9th Ave Campus).  As such, for Residents who rotate to the VAMC, parking is provided via the GME VA Keycard issued by the CU Parking Office. Residents should work directly with their program coordinators to obtain the necessary parking access and keycards for VAMC parking. ​

Important Parking Information:
DO NOT share your entry card with anyone else as it is your University ID badge. This is a violation of the Parking Services rules as well as campus security, and you could have your entry card/permit revoked. Parking spaces are limited.  By sharing your ID, you are denying a parking spot to another Resident who has a legitimate right to park in the lot.

If your parking card is not working or if you have any parking questions that cannot be answered by your program please contact the CU Parking Office directly.
