When visiting Lewis & Clark for the first time, use Entry Gate 3 and visit the Campus Safety building. There, you can obtain a campus map, register your vehicle for an ePermit (virtual permit) to park on campus, and ask for directions on which parking lot to use.
Parking at Lewis & Clark requires an ePermit during the fall and spring semesters, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Parking is free after 7 p.m. weekdays, as well as on weekends. During the summer (mid-May through August), ePermits are required only for parking in staff spaces on the Law and Graduate campuses. Reserved parking for disabled visitors is distributed throughout lots on all three campuses.
