Our parking system manages supply and demand while providing the Duke community with options that balance price and convenience. Our parking facilities require a valid permit to enter and exit gated facilities. Visitors without a permit pay by the hour -- read more about visitor parking below.

Employees and students who park at Duke are required to have a permit. Permits are also available to departments and Duke contractors.

Visitor Parking

Visitor parking is available throughout campus, both in surface lots and spaces equipped with meters, and in garages. Garages utilize automated pay stations --  watch an instructional video to learn about how they work.
