Spring Semester and Winter Parking Ban Reminder

The Winter Parking Ban is in effect between November 1st and May 1st.  Starting November 1st all commuter, staff, and visitor parking lots are closed to parking between midnight and 6am. Permitted vehicles may park overnight in either the Bridge Tennis Court or College Ave South lots.  Please remind visitors to campus of this policy to avoid their vehicles being cited or towed.

Also, please be advised – like in the past years, parking will be tight during the first week of classes.
Plan for delays when traveling to campus. Be aware that signs will be used in the CCA & Belgrade Lots to direct drivers to open spaces. To avoid searching for a parking space, please consider carpooling, biking, or walking if possible. Also remember that displaying your Maine Card allows you to ride the Community Connector and Black Bear Orono Express at no cost. We appreciate your help making the transition into the new semester as smooth as possible.
We also encourage you to call 581-INFO (4636) or the map feature on the Campus Sidekick App to find parking lots with available spaces.


The administrative office of Parking and Transportation Services is located in 523 DTAV Community Building, however, you may pay a citation, purchase a permit or obtain appeal forms at MaineCard Services, 130 Memorial Union and they are open 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday

If you have any parking issues, please call us so we can help you. 207.581.4047. We will work with you to resolve your parking needs.  

Lot Closings and Updates

Things move fast at UMaine! Events and lot closings are denoted by posted signs at the entrances of parking lots in advance of the events. For a complete list of campus activities please visit the University Calendar page.

If you feel you will be directly affected by an event, you may want to consider car-pooling or riding the Community Connector Bus free with your MaineCard. Please remember that parking rules and lot designations are constant and remain in effect as posted. Park your vehicle in an appropriate space to avoid a citation.
