We welcome thousands of visitors to our beautiful campus every year.
Before you visit, please review 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 email@example.com or give us a call at 330-972-7213. We also encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more updates.
All vehicles parked on campus must have 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).
Location: 255 E. Buchtel Ave. (map)
Anyone visiting the UAkronPark 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 UAkronPark 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 at a meter.
Parking options for visitors
One-day pass | Along with the ability to purchase a parking permit through UAkronPark.com, one-day visitor permits are also available for purchase in the UAkronPark Office during normal business hours (payment via credit card is preferred). The UAkronPark Office is located in the North Campus Parking Deck, on the Buchtel Avenue level (see on map). When visiting the UAkronPark Office, you may utilize the two UAkronPark visitor spaces located just behind the office in the North Campus Parking Deck. The entrance is located on Buchtel Avenue (on the outside of the deck) not far from the bridge. Please remember to bring your vehicle information, including your license plate number.
Gated visitor lot | You can park in our gated visitor parking garage located on 248 E. Buchtel Ave. under the Robertson Dining Hall and across the street from the UAkronPark Office. You will take a ticket as you enter the garage and pay the parking attendant when you leave. The rate is $1.50/hour + $0.35 transaction fee with a maximum of $10 for the day.
Parking meter | You can park at one of the metered parking spaces located throughout campus for use by anyone. The rate is $0.25 per 15 minutes. The yellow triangles on this map show the locations of the meters.
