Parking

JayPark is now open

The much-anticipated parking management system, JayPark, is now open for students and employees.

All Omaha-based students and employees are able to register for parking permits and garage waitlists, pay citations, and manage vehicle and contact information in their JayPark account. Student and employee permits for the Phoenix Campus will transition to JayPark later this fall.

In this transition to the new system, please ensure all information is correct, including your vehicle information and your personal contact details. 

Please pay any prior outstanding citations. If you are unsure if you have unpaid citations, email your vehicle details (including license plate number) and your NetID to parking@Creighton.edu so we can assist in answering specific questions.

All parking information, including permit pricing, updated maps, and the new citation penalty structure, can be found on this site. Make sure to read and understand all rules and regulations.

Where to Park — Parking Maps

Students and employees are required to have an annual, or temporary, parking permit when parking on the Omaha campus. There are designated student, employee, perimeter, visitor and patient permit lots. All visitors should coordinate a pass through the Parking Services office, located at the Harper Center, Room 1090.

Parking on campus?

Any vehicle on property should have a decal or temporary hangtag issued by Parking Services or is subject to citation. 

If you sell your vehicle, keep your decal. If you forget, you must park on city streets or purchase a day pass at Parking Services. If you lose your decal, you will need to purchase a new permit at the price applicable on the date of purchase. If your vehicle and/or decal is stolen or totaled, bring a police report to Parking Services to get a new decal.

The person who purchases the permit is responsible for any citations issued to that permit, regardless of whose vehicle displayed the permit. Read more about in the “Additional Information” section below.

Student Parking

Student parking lots and spaces are designated in green. Lots designated in gold are available to any permit type.

Surface Parking

  • Available to students at the previous base rate of $400 per year.  
  • Surface parking includes the uncovered levels of garages.

Perimeter Parking  

  • includes lots W6, E93 and E99. Drivers parking in perimeter lots are encouraged to use Creighton’s free Shuttle Service to their destination.  
  • Available for $100 per year.
  • In the interest of safety, all Creighton affiliates displaying a valid perimeter permit may park in any student, employee, or all permit parking lots from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday, and any time on weekends.

Garage Parking

  • Available to students at the $400 base rate plus a $120 per year premium.  
  • The premium charge will be phased in over two years. For the upcoming fall semester, this will amount to an extra $60 charge for garage parking.  
  • Permits will be sold according to the garage, and registrations will be filled in the order they are received. Once at capacity, additional requests will be placed on a waitlist.  
  • Garages will require an ID card linked to a vehicle registration for the specific garage.

The 20th and 30th Street Garages will initially be capped at 35% of capacity for employees and 35% for students; after these caps are reached, we will assess how to fairly allocate the remaining 30% using the waitlist.

The 24th Street garage will first be opened only to residential students. If all stalls are not allocated, registration will be opened to any student. If stalls still remain, registration will be opened to employees.

The Kenefick and Heider garages will be sold to residents of those halls.

Employee Parking

Employee parking lots and spaces are designated in blue. Lots designated in gold are available to any permit type.

See the pay scale below.

In addition to several surface parking lots the 20th and 30th Street Garages will initially be capped at 35% of capacity for employees and 35% for students; after these caps are reached, we will assess how to fairly allocate the remaining 30% using the waitlist.

We also continue to use a tiered pricing structure, which reflects our values by more equitably distributing the cost of parking based on the salary range. The adjustments are reflected in the tables below. Register through JayPark.  

  • Automatic payroll deductions for benefits-eligible employees will begin on Sept. 1.
  • Because payroll deductions are not available for non-benefits-eligible employees, payment can only be made by credit/debit card through JayPark after which the hangtag can be picked up at Parking Services.
  • Past citations must be paid in full before receiving any new parking decals or hangtags. If you are unsure about past citations, email your license plate info to parking@creighton.edu.

    Additional Information

    Windshield Decals and Temporary Hangtags

    To avoid a citation, Creighton employees and students must have a decal or temporary hangtag issued by Parking Services when parking on property at any time.

    • Faculty, staff, and students may never park in visitor parking.
    • 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.
    • 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.

    Placement

    The University uses a repositionable decal, which must be affixed to the interior of the front windshield on the passenger side in the lower corner. The entire decal must be clearly visible from the outside—not positioned behind tinting or obscured by snow/ice.

    Repositionable

    The repositionable decal allows you to move your decal to another vehicle for any reason, including getting a new vehicle during the year, driving a loaner or riding with another driver to campus.

    Do not misplace your decal. Keep your decal if you sell your vehicle.

    • Lose your decal? You will need to purchase a new permit at the price applicable on the date of purchase.
    • Stolen or totaled vehicle and/or decal? Bring a police report to Public Safety to get a new decal. The person who purchases the permit is responsible for any citations issued to that permit, regardless of whose vehicle displayed the permit.
    • Forget to move your decal from another vehicle? You must park on city streets or purchase a day pass at Public Safety.

    Special Section Areas

    All employees, students and guests on campus are asked not to block fire lanes, fire hydrants, gate arms, or service/garage doors, or park on grass or landscaping.

    Do not park or leave your vehicle unattended in any of the following areas at any time:

    • Stalls reserved for the President / Vice Presidents, Provost / Vice Provosts, Deans, Jesuits or Visitors
    • Deglman Circle (Drop off and pick up only; vehicle must be attended at all times)
    • East Lane by the Harper Center (Drop off and pick up only; vehicle must be attended at all times)
    • Visitor parking

    Do not park in handicapped stalls without a state-issued handicapped permit or license plate. A vehicle with state-issued handicapped permit or license plate must also display a University permit to park in a designated handicapped stall on University property.
