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, parking permit, and directions on which parking lot to use.
Parking permits are required 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), permits 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.
