Visitor Parking

Each year, Tulane University hosts thousands of visitors on its uptown campus for sporting events, concerts, recreational activities and seminars. All vehicles parked on the uptown campus between the hours of 8:00am and 5:30pm, Monday-Friday, are required to display a University Parking Permit or park in a metered parking place.

Visitors may purchase a one-day parking pass at the Parking Services during business hours. Visitors have the option to pay to park on the ground level of the Diboll Complex or use parking meters located throughout campus. Parking permits are not required when guests park in timed or metered spaces, provided the time limit is obeyed and the parking meter is not expired. Maximum time limits for parking meters are posted on each meter.
