WELCOME TO PARKING SERVICES
gugg.gifParking Services is a division of Facilities Management and is here to help you understand parking. Campus Parking policies are enforced year round, including holidays, summers and semester breaks.
We will help you get a parking permit and explain where that permit allows you to park. It is important to observe all posted signs and curb markings to reduce the possibility of getting a parking ticket. If you are coming to campus for the first time and are not sure where you can park, please see Visitor Parking information below or call us for specific information.
Colorado School of Mines is a pay to park campus. Visitor parking areas are those blue and yellow lots on the campus map PDF version Text only version

Visiting campus for the first time...? Please identify those blue and yellow parking lots close to the building you are visiting. Then, on arrival, find a space in that lot, pay the meter for the amount of time you plan to park, and display that receipt on your dash. At all of our meters, you’ll find parking brochures with maps to help guide you around campus, as well as contact information for the Parking Services office.
We are located in building 22, just south of 13th Street on Maple, across the parking lot from the Geology Museum (#24 on the campus map). Please be sure to contact us with your parking questions. Your comments and concerns are important to us, so let us know how we can assist you further.
Bus parking is exclusively at the north end of Lot Q in the northwest quadrant of campus. For more detailed directions, please see the campus map or contact the Parking Office. Buses utilizing the Student Center or Recreation Center should use the area along 17th Street, on the south side of the Recreation Center for pick-ups and drop-offs.
Although parking permits are not required for guests attending graduation services, observing posted signs and curb markings is expected.
