Visitor Parking

Visitors to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus are always welcome.  

An hourly parking lot designated for visitors on the UL Lafayette campus is located at the new Girard Park Circle Parking Garage located on Girard Park Circle. Levels one through three are the designated visitor parking levels for this garage. The lot on the side of the Student Union is designated as complimentary 30-minute parking for visitors. Parking is restricted to 30 minutes per occurrence in this lot.

University affiliates who park on campus are required to purchase a permit, therefore, we ask visitors to refrain from parking in areas designated for faculty, staff and students, unless prior arrangements are made through Transportation Services. Violators are subject to ticketing and/or towing. Faculty, staff and students are responsible for any citations that are issued to visiting family members.

If parking is not available in one of these areas or if special arrangements are needed, please call Transportation Services at 337.482.6858.
