If your class meets on the College Park campus on weekdays after 4 p.m. or anytime on the weekend, you do not need a UMCP parking permit.

Be sure to pay attention to signs at the entrance to all parking locations for possible restrictions, as this information may change throughout the semester.

The UM Shuttle 125 (Circulator) transports students across campus on a limited basis.

If you are taking a UMUC course that meets weekdays at College Park before 4 p.m., you can only acquire a free parking permit for Lot 4 by presenting a photocopy of your itemized UMUC bill to the Department of Campus Parking at UMCP. Meters are in effect 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Monday-Friday. For more information, call 301-314-PARK (7275).
