Basic Regulations

All vehicles parked on Creighton University property are required to display a valid University parking permit.  A valid parking permit consists of a decal that should be affixed to the exterior of the rear window on the driver's side.  If your vehicle does not have a glass rear window, please place the decal on the front windshield, lower corner on the passenger side. The purchase of a Creighton University parking permit only allows you to search for and occupy a parking space as space is available.  It does not guarantee the availability of a space. 

Garage Parking

Student parking is available on Levels 1 and 2 of the 20th Street Garage, on Levels 2 and 3 of the 24th Street Garage, and on Level 2 of the 30th Street Garage.  

Faculty/staff parking is available on the top level of the 20th Street Garage, on the top and bottom levels of the 24th Street Garage, and on the bottom level of the 30th Street Garage.  University ID cards and parking permits are required to access and use all garages.

Motorcycle Parking 

Motorcycles parked near bicycle racks do not require a permit; however, motorcycles that take up a parking space must display a current parking decal.
