With nearly 13,000 students at Duke, we are continually making strides to provide the best and easiest ways to park on campus. While we can't guarantee every student a parking space, we provide parking to students based on where they live or study. Parking permit fees are charged to your bursar account.
Undergraduate Academic Year 2020-2021 Announcement
Your parking permit type is based upon whether you live on or off campus but housing assignment information will not be available until mid-July. Please purchase your permit after July 27 and before August 7 at Manage My Parking Account.
