Departmental Validation Tickets

Departments may purchase validation tickets from Parking and Transportation Services for their guests. All requestors should send e-mail through our website to reserve visitor parking at least 3 days in advance to ensure availability. Upon notification, departments must pick up and sign for requested validation tickets at the Parking & Transportation Services Office.

Once email confirmation of reservations is received, there will be no cancellations, returns, or credits given. Parking validation tickets are only valid during the parking fiscal year in which they are ordered. For example: September 1, 2010 - August 31, 2011.

Guests are subject to all parking regulations; it is the responsibility of the department or the individual who arranges for visitor parking to make the parking policies known to the guests. The Parking & Transportation policy may be obtained in the Parking & Transportation Services Office or online at www.cmu.edu/parking.

The parking meters and time signs on Frew, Tech and Margaret Morrison Streets are under the authority of the City of Pittsburgh and are not affected by Carnegie Mellon visitor parking.

Groups and Special Events

Departments may submit a parking request to the Parking & Transportation Services office for groups conducting special events on campus. When requesting visitor’s parking reservations for events with over 100 vehicles, Parking & Transportation Services will provide the event sponsor with the name of a special parking attendant, who will provide parking assistance at the expense of event sponsor. The Parking & Transportation Services office must receive requests, in writing, as soon as confirmation of the event has occurred (at the minimum, Parking & Transportation Services must receive requests at least two weeks in advance of the event). To make a reservation, departments must use the Online Parking Reservation Form. Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
