Students bringing a car to campus should be aware of the following:
First, Register Your Vehicle: Student vehicles need to be registered with the Dean of Students Office. A Lawrence University parking sticker must be affixed in the lower right rear window area of your vehicle in order to be authorized to park in this area. Reminder: Secure your vehicle and do not leave valuables in your vehicle. Lawrence University will not be responsible for items left in your vehicle.

Only students with appropriate lottery permits may park in these areas. Learn more about the lottery here.
If You Don't Get A Lottery Parking Space: The west end of the Banta Bowl lot may be used for (free) student parking. This is a good choice for students who use their vehicles only occasionally during the school year. This will be free student parking on a first-come-first-serve basis.
