Good Luck Getting a Spot Here
- Guild/Memorial lot during a basketball game
- Outside Brandt and Wehrenberg halls
- Directly outside Scheele is also difficult since it is so near the Freshman Residential Halls, and the school did not allocate a large amount of parking spaces there.
Getting a Parking Permit
Freshmen may obtain permits if they live 500 or more miles from Valpo, or if they have an off-campus job. Resident permits (sophomores and juniors) are available to any and all upperclassmen. Senior parking permits are available only to those students with senior class standing, and allow those students to park in resident or commuter parking areas. Commuter permits are available to any and all enrolled students who live off campus, including fraternity members.
