Parking Policies

Parking in the College lots requires a parking permit (available from Campus Safety). Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please display your parking permit on the lower driver side windshield. The purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space, but students who arrive early generally park without difficulty. Students must be in a campus building while parked on campus. With the exception of the Founders Green lot, overnight parking on campus is not permitted. These lots are not attended, so cars should be locked. Maryland Institute College of Art is not responsible for damage to vehicles kept on the lot or for the theft of valuables left in cars.
