Welcome to the University of Akron!
The University of Akron welcomes thousands of visitors to our beautiful campus every year. Before visiting our campus, please review all of your parking options and select the one that best suits your needs. If you are not sure, just give us a call we are happy to walk you through your options! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 330-972-7213. We also encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates.
All vehicles parked on campus must display a valid parking permit or park in meters or visitor garages and pay prevailing hourly rates. If you are visiting campus for more than a few hours, your best option is to purchase a one-day permit (details below).
There are three options for visitors parking on campus:
Location: 255 E. Buchtel Ave. (map)
Anyone visiting the Parking Office for only the purpose of purchasing a permit may park in the gated visitor lot on Buchtel Avenue (directly across from the Parking Office) free of charge.
If you do this, please bring the ticket that you received from the dispenser to the Parking Office for validation.
If the visitor lot is full, then legal parking may be found at a meter. Unfortunately, we cannot reimburse you for money used to feed a meter.
