Parking is available anywhere within the provided parking lots south of the building and is free of charge. When there is a large community event scheduled on a day when CU classes are in session, part of the lot may be blocked off for CU student parking only. When this occurs, the area designated for CU students will be identified with signage and in some cases, personnel will be directing cars to the appropriate section. Please note that vehicles left more than one night may be towed.  If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot move your car, call 303-315-9405.
