UMC Business Office Parking Lot Map

The UMC campus has nine lots (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, and J) available for campus parking. Handicapped spaces are available in each lot. Overnight parking is allowed in lots C, D, E, and F. Overnight parking in Lots A, G, and J have designated overnight parking areas marked with the appropriate signage.

The UMC campus observes an open parking policy which allows vehicles with valid parking permits to park in open spaces on a "first-come first-served" basis.

Parking is not permitted on streets, in loading zones, or in any spaces other than those designated in the nine parking lots. All vehicles must be parked within the designated parking spaces.

For 2013-14 parking will be allowed on the campus mall street. Those who purchase the "ALL LOTS PERMIT" will be allowed to park in the right lane of the mall road. The areas where permit parking is allowed will have the appropriate signage. NO OVERNIGHT PARKING will be allowed on the campus mall street.

Parking in the Northwest Research and Outreach Center (NWROC) parking lots by UMC staff or students is not permitted without a valid NWROC parking permit.
