Carnegie Mellon University

For the health and safety of our campus community members, we are implementing modified Parking Service office hours until further notice.


April 16, 2020: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf have recommended that individuals wear face coverings in public, in addition to observing physical distancing measures, to help stem the spread of COVID-19.

For the health and safety of our community, we are asking everyone to wear a face covering when riding the CMU Shuttles.

April 14, 2020:    The Shuttle services are operating every 45 minutes, effective immediately.  Please check the Shuttle and Escort information for daily service updates

April 9, 2020After careful consideration, University leadership decided to continue the current policy allowing parking permit holders to cancel their permits at any time. However, permit holders who choose to cancel will lose their guaranteed spot, and will be placed on the waiting list if they choose to purchase a parking permit at a later date. This process is consistent with past practice.

All parking services will continue to be available online through the parking portal, including payment or appeal of citations, and/or updates to vehicle information.
