Parking - Facilities


No parking permits are required for the University Center campus. Adequate parking is available, so please do not park on grassy areas. The NMC University Center has a South and a North Parking lot. The South parking lot is best for visiting partner university staff offices and for classes held in UC 01–UC 11 and UC 204–UC 209. The North parking lot is best for visiting UC 12–UC 17 and UC 211–UC 219.

Students commuting to NMC’s main campus should be aware that valid NMC parking permits are required. Metered spaces adjacent to the Osterlin Building are available for general public. No permit is required after 6 p.m., on weekends or during the summer semester. Temporary guest and emergency permits are available at the Welcome Center in the Health & Science Building or the registration/cashier’s office in Tanis (see NMC Campus map).
