Visitor Parking

Temporary Parking

Between March 30 and April 27, visitors should park in Lot 6, behind the Fine Arts Center.


All visitors parking a vehicle on the Kingston Campus from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday are required to display a current parking pass issued from our Visitor Center. Visitor Lots are designated in pink on the Kingston Campus Map.
Visitor passes are not required on weekends, holidays or from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. on weekdays.
Only passes obtained from the Visitors Center are valid. Any other passes displayed on a vehicle will not be recognized by Parking Services and could result in ticketing and/or towing of the vehicle.
When planning a seminar or conference, please alert the Parking Services Office well in advance of your event (at least 2 weeks before the event) so that the proper paperwork can be processed. You can fill out a Group Visitor Pass application by visiting this website. Group passes are issued for groups of 15 or more people. When your group count is less than 15 people, each visitor must stop at the Visitors Center for a regular day pass when they arrive on campus.
Please submit a Group Visitor Pass Request click here.
Visitor Passes are not issued to faculty, staff, or students. Faculty and staff are required to park in staff lots with a current staff hang tag displayed. All students are required to register their vehicles through our online registration system.
For more information, please contact the Visitor Center, located at 95 Upper College Rd., at (401) 874-2133.

Overnight Visitors

Overnight visitors do not need a parking pass from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. and may park in the Visitor Lots only between 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m.

If the visitor is staying for the weekend, they may park there from Friday afternoon through Monday morning at 7:00 a.m. without a permit.

If the overnight visitor is staying through a weekday, they must return to the Visitors Center in the morning and obtain a Visitor Parking Pass and park in a Visitor Lot Monday – Friday.

Vehicles on campus that are not displaying valid parking permits during the day are subject to warnings and could possibly be ticketed or towed at the owners expense.
