Basic Regulations

All vehicles parked on property that is owned or leased by Creighton University must display a current University parking permit in the lower right corner of the front windshield. Motorcycles parked near bicycle racks do not require a permit; however, motorcycles that take up a parking stall must display a current parking decal. Displaying a permit allows you to leave a vehicle in a parking stall, as space is available, but does not guarantee the availability of a stall. University ID cards and parking permits are required for all garages.

There are significant changes to the parking permit process this year, including the implementation of interior repositionable decals. Please carefully review the parking info sheet for important information about changes to parking fees and rules for the new year. Failure to read the parking policy will not be accepted as grounds for a citation appeal.

All unpaid parking citations must be paid in full prior to receiving your parking permit.

UPDATE - September 20, 2018

In the interest of safety, Public Safety, the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions and the School of Dentistry have assessed their needs for after-hour patient parking and agreed to open patient parking areas for after-hours parking for Creighton affiliates with parking permits:

  • Faculty, staff, students with Creighton permits may park in OT/PT patient parking under the BIC (Lot 87) from 6 p.m.-6 a.m., Monday through Friday, and any time on weekends.
  • Faculty, staff, students with Creighton permits may park in Dental Patient Parking (Lots 38A, 28, and 8A) from 5 p.m. through 6 a.m., Monday through Friday and any time on the weekends.

As a reminder:

  • Faculty, staff, and students may never park in visitor parking by the Harper Center or the Lied Education Center for the Arts (Lot 5 and Lot 35).
  • Students with valid permits may park in faculty/staff lots from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday, and any time on weekends.
  • Evening-only permits are available for no cost at Public Safety; these permits allow faculty, staff, and students to park in faculty/staff and student parking areas from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday, and any time on weekends. The evening-only permit also may be used in patient parking areas during the hours listed above. The evening-only permit may not be used to park in visitor parking areas.
  • Unauthorized parking in handicapped stalls, fire lanes, and specifically-designated stalls (e.g., VP/Dean, Facilities Vehicles, etc.) is enforced at all times, year-round.
