Visitor Parking

Duke University and Health System strive to provide convenient and cost-effective parking for all visitors. Directional signs and friendly staff are available to assist visitors in finding available spaces near buildings or venues of interest. Hours of operation are posted at each visitor parking location. In order to locate the most convenient parking facility, plan your visit ahead of time. For campus events, visitors must pay the parking fee with cash in order to park. Employee parking in lots reserved for patients and visitors is strictly prohibited.
