Stevens Police reserve the right to close campus parking facilities for construction projects, emergencies, or special events. It is the responsibility of Stevens community members and their visitors to be aware of and abide by all closures. Closure announcements supersede information found on this page.

Parking is restricted to valid permit holders during stated operating hours.
