Campus Parking Regulations

The Fall 2019 semester marked the beginning of a new parking system at the Central Connecticut State University campus.  All CCSU students, faculty, and staff are required to obtain a new, color-coded parking decal for their vehicle(s). 

General Information:

The new parking regulations went into effect on September 16, 2019.

Color-coded parking will be enforced year-round, Monday through Friday from 5:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Parking decals should be placed inside the vehicle on the lower driver’s side corner of the rear windshield.

In addition to a CCSU color-coded decal, anyone displaying a state-issued Handicap Parking Tag will have access to all lots and all parking garages on campus.

Flags and banners have been installed to clearly mark the color-coded lots.

More detailed information regarding CCSU’s Parking Regulations and Parking Ticket Appeals is available on the CCSU Parking website and the CCSU Police Department website.

Why the New System?

Three major construction projects are about to begin (the renovation and expansion of Barnard Hall and construction of the new Engineering Building and a new parking garage).

During the peak of construction, there will be a reduction of approximately 300 current parking spaces. Addressing its impact required significant consulting and planning to accommodate the needs of our campus community. The CCSU Parking Task Force, in collaboration with Walker Parking Consultants, identified the need for a three-phase parking plan. Phase I and Phase II will address parking needs during the construction projects. Phase III will be developed over the next 18 months with input from faculty, staff, and students, and will take into account the available parking made possible by the new garage and additional surface spaces.
