Parking Information

Parking Locations - Where Can I Park?

All parking lots at UMass Lowell require a current decal on every vehicle when parked before 2 p.m. Parking without decal is permitted on the following schedule and locations, but may not park in designated parking (i.e. Service Vehicles, Designated Parking, Cabinet Member, Department Chair, etc), and must park in legally marked spaces:

  • Commuter surface lots (Riverside A, Riverside B, Broadway/Riverview, Coburn) open on weekdays at 2 p.m. and all day on weekends.
  • Staff surface lots (Olsen, Wilder, Upper Mahoney, Durgin) open on weekdays at 3:30 p.m. and all day on weekends.
  • Faculty and designated lots (Costello/Pinanski and Cumnock) open on weekdays at 5 p.m. and all day on weekends.

In addition, parking in the Fletcher and Salem Lot is available to students with current parking permits after 5 p.m. on weekdays, and all day on weekends, for use of University Crossing.  Parking in these two lots may be restricted during major events. Students without a current permit, or those needing to park prior to 5 p.m., must park in the Pawtucket Metered Lot at the posted rates.

DO NOT attempt to park in a lot if you do not have the privileges listed below, or on the schedule listed above. Even if the gate is open before the schedule listed above, you will be subject to a citation.

Campus maps are available for download. You can also get directions to campus using our interactive Google maps.
