Just wanted to keep you updated on the ever-changing parking situation at Notre Dame! The west part of the Walsh Architecture Lot (formerly known as the C Lot, next to the building construction site) has been allotted for paid visitor parking during regular business hours.
This does not affect most shifts, as the lot is open after 4:00 PM on weekdays and all day on the weekends. Any ushers who work any weekday shifts, please do what we have normally been doing. You can go to the Bookstore guard gate and get a day pass. Before day shifts, we will contact Parking Services to let them know that we have volunteers coming to work and they should give you a pass with no trouble. Then you can park in the Joyce, Compton or Walsh Architecture Lots.
Here is Parking’s official word on Visitor Parking, if for some reason you’re just visiting and not ushering!:
Visitor parking is available at the following locations:
- Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore (one hour parking)
- Morris Inn (for guests of the hotel or restaurants)
- Legends of Notre Dame (for customers only)
- Visitor Lot (paid parking)
Please visit map.nd.edu and select the Visitor Parking overlay to view these areas on a map.
The Visitor Lot is located on the west end of the Walsh Architecture parking lot. During regular business hours (Monday–Friday, 7a.m. – 4p.m.), visitors must purchase a permit at the pay station (credit cards only) near the entrance to the lot. The permit must be displayed face up on the driver’s side of the vehicle’s dashboard, so it is visible to parking enforcement staff.
No permit is required outside of regular business hours and on holidays.
If the Visitor Lot reaches capacity, visitors must purchase a permit and then park in any non-reserved space within the Joyce, Compton or Walsh Architecture Lots.
The current rate schedule is:
- 1hr – Free (must obtain permit and display on dash)
- 2hrs – $1
- 3hrs – $2
- 4hrs – $3
- 4+hrs – $8
There you go!
