As you know, parking around campus can be tricky. The small lot on Garrett Place will be reserved for the Board of Trustees meeting, but open for all access after the Commencement ceremony on Friday, May 13. We recommend street parking, Northwestern lots, and City of Evanston lots:

  • Northwestern University parking map is available here. Parking enforcement is in effect from M-F 8-4pm where permits are required. A good option to consider is the South Campus Parking Garage, located at 1841 Sheridan Road, with a $9 daily rate. If parking in this garage, be sure to park in the area that requires you to obtain a ticket upon entry.
  • City of Evanston parking map is available here. Note that Church Street Self Park is conveniently located at Church St and Chicago Ave near the Commencement Ceremony. It is only $5 to park up to 5 hours.
