Where can I park at the ARC?

Metered spaces are available in the lot just west of the ARC (Lot E24) as well as along Peabody Drive in front of the building. Additional metered space is available on Fourth Street and in the Art and Design and Law School lots.

Patrons with a Lot E-24 hang tag may legally park in the metered spaces.

Be Advised: The parking lot directly across the street from the ARC entrance (Lot E38) is a 24/7 permit-only lot.  You will be ticketed or towed unless you have the appropriate hangtag.
