For events in the Center for Art Design and Visual Culture, we have made arrangements with campus parking services for free evening parking in Lot 8. As with all lots, free parking is available in Lot 8 on Saturday and Sunday, all day. To get to Lot 8, proceed either way around Hilltop Circle until you reach Hilltop Road, and then take Hilltop Road toward campus (toward the construction site). Take an immediate left into Lot 8 and park.
For visitor parking on weekdays during the work day, visitors can park in the designated visitor parking areas on the printable parking map below. Visitor parking meters are now “pay and display”. The meters take bills, Visa, and Mastercard. The meters are also ADA compliant. The rate for visitor parking is $2 an hour.
Generally, campus roadways and non-visitor parking lots require UMBC permits Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday. Permits are enforced year round.
