Parking at HCC

HCC provides free parking for students, employees, and visitors. Parking is free, but not guaranteed. Especially during "prime time" (8 a.m. – 2 p.m.), HCC cannot promise a parking space for every student, visitor, or employee. Students driving to campus should allow enough extra time to look for a parking space and to walk or take the shuttle bus from more distant parking lots.

Students and employees must register their vehicle with Campus Police and display a parking decal to park on campus. Parking for persons with disabilities is available in designated lots. Everyone must park in designated and/or assigned (for employees) parking lots and observe all parking and traffic rules and regulations. Violators are subject to fines and/or towing. Overnight parking is not permitted on campus.

Visitor Parking

Visitors to the Kittredge Center may park in D-Lot. Visitors to other areas of the college should park in J-Lot, in front of the Frost building.

Students may not park in the Visitor's Lot at any time.
