Parking on Campus

Parking on Campus

Howard University offers a limited amount of parking on campus for students, faculty/staff, and visitors. Our goal is to ensure all patrons receive a fair opportunity to utilize the parking facilities available on campus.
Keep in mind that limited parking means limited availability. If you did not receive parking for this year, you are not alone. The university strongly encourages visitors and employees to consider alternate forms of travel when accessing campus.
