Where to Park on Campus?

Whether you are coming to campus for a class, a tour, or a community event, there are plenty of transportation and parking options available. 

At UNC Greensboro’s Parking Operations and Campus Access Management (POCAM), we seek to provide you with a variety of quality parking and transportation options that are convenient and reliable for your campus experience. 

There are three pay-by-hour parking decks and multiple surface lots with metered parking located throughout our campus. You can also park and hop on a Spartan Chariot to help get you to where you need to be quick.

The pay-by-hour parking decks have both permit parking (limited availability) and pay-by-hour visitor parking. During high volume parking periods, the pay-by-hour parking may be temporarily suspended. In our parking decks, the cost is $2 for the first hour, $1 for each additional hour for a $10 maximum per day per entry fee. If you exit the deck in under 30 minutes, then there is no charge for that time. LOST DECK ENTRY TICKET: Pay by hour customers that lose their entry ticket (ticket pulled upon entry) will be charged a $20 lost ticket fee.

Metered spaces are located throughout campus for a cost of 25 cents per 15 minute intervals and may be paid via the ParkMobile app. Some parking lot locations are restricted for a variety of permit holders such as residents, commuters, faculty, and staff.

Spartan Chariots are free and transport students around campus.

To help you travel around campus with ease, the University provides free shuttle services via the Spartan Chariots. A fleet of Spartan Chariots travel throughout campus on three different routes.

As a student or staff/faculty, you may also travel on the Greensboro Transportation Agency’s (GTA) buses to and from downtown Greensboro and the greater community. GTA’s Higher Education Access Transit (HEAT) buses transport riders between the area colleges and universities, as well as to shopping centers and other points of interest throughout Greensboro. Students and staff/faculty can ride both GTA and HEAT buses fare-free with their SpartanCard; simply swipe it at the fare box when boarding the bus.

The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART) serves UNCG’s campus with two different routes. Students receive a 50% discount off PART fares, while staff/faculty receive a 30% discount if registered through PART’s XPass Program.
