Parking permits are required for all vehicles on campus Monday–Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Parking for Saturday and Sunday courses does not require a permit.
Leisure course participants have two options for parking:

  1. You may park in any metered space and pay at the nearest pay station for a per-hour fee.
  2. You may purchase a parking permit, valid for the days of your course, at the Visitor’s Center (Dalrymple Drive at Highland Road). This permit allows you to park in campus commuter lots during weekdays. After 4:30 p.m., the permit allows you to park in any LSU lot except metered spaces. To purchase this type of permit, you must show your registration confirmation/receipt.

Note: The Visitor’s Center is open Monday–Friday, 7 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
