Garage and Surface Parking

To meet its goal of educating students, Duquesne University offers students and employees various parking services and parking permit options. Students and employees who do not purchase parking permits should still register their vehicles.

  • No one is required to purchase parking services at the university; there are many other parking lots and garages in the campus vicinity.
  • Because of the high demand for parking, we cannot always provide space for everyone.
  • We do not guarantee that parking will always be available for those who purchase a permit.
  • On occasions when surface spaces are full, it is the sole responsibility of the permit holder to locate alternative parking. Many public parking lots and garages are located near the campus.
  • Visitors and anyone without a permit should park in Forbes Garage.

All campus parking is subject to enforcement hours.

No Overnight Parking

Please note that there is no overnight parking for daily visitors in our garages or in surface spaces.
