Parking at the UNC School
of Law is by permit only. All
vehicles parked on campus from 7:30 a.m. –
5:00 p.m. must display a valid daytime parking permit for the designated parking
staff, and students may park in lots surrounding the Law School which include
the S-3, S-10, and T-Lots. Student S-3 parking includes spaces along Ridge Road
and the Navy Field Lot but does NOT include the upper S-3 “Faculty” lot closest
to the main entrance of the law school. The S-10 Lot is located down Ridge Road
near the Boshamer (baseball) Stadium, and T Lot parking is located at the end
of Country Club Road.
Second and Third-Year Law School Parking Registration
Parking Allocation Process
is limited and demand outweighs supply. On-campus parking is available for
second- and third-year law students. First-year law students are
NOT eligible to register for on-campus parking through UNC Transportation & Parking. Transportation & Parking
assigns student parking permits through a Lottery Registration. Students living within the
2-mile radius from the UNC Bell Tower are not
eligible for on-campus parking. Permit eligibility will be verified in early
fall 2016, and students not eligible for their assigned permit will be notified
to return their permit to Transportation & Parking.
Lottery Registration Dates
The Transportation & Parking lottery is open for two weeks for second- and third-year law
students beginning Monday, June 22, 2015 through Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Permit assignments are emailed within 10-days of the close of lottery registration. Assigned permits MUST be paid for before the designated deadline or the permit is forfeited.
It is important to review permit eligibility prior
to registration. Please visit the UNC Transportation & Parking Student page and select "Law School" under Academic Parking for more information.
Permit Waiting List
Following the permit
lottery and registration period, any unpaid permits will be forfeited. Wait list sign-up for student parking begins in August. Students that do not receive their
first choice permit during the lottery registration process are
automatically wait listed for their first choice permit. Wait list priority
is determined based on lottery ranking. Students signing up for the wait list
after the lottery period closes will be ranked based on a first-come,
first-served basis. Wait list releases occur every two weeks beginning with the 3rd Friday in August and continuing until the end of March (excluding the month of December). Joining a waiting list does not guarantee you will be
offered a permit during the academic year.
UNC School of Law Hardship Parking Application Process
significant family or commute-related hardship may be eligible for a permit
through the UNC School of Law Hardship Parking Application process. Even if
individual circumstances warrant applying for a Hardship Permit, students
should still register (if eligible) for the Transportation & Parking parking permit lottery.
Incoming 1L students may apply for hardship parking beginning Tuesday, June 16. We encourage 2L and 3L students to apply for the general parking lottery PRIOR to applying for a hardship permit. Therefore, 2L and 3L students may submit a hardship parking application beginning Friday, July 17th. All Hardship Parking Applications are due to Dorsey Bachenheimer, Office of Student Services, by Friday, July 31, 2015.
