2015-2016 DePaul University Neighborhood Parking Program

The Neighborhood Parking Program on DePaul University’s Lincoln Park campus was developed with the cooperation of the Transportation Committee, a community-university advisory committee coordinated by DePaul’s Office of Community & Government Relations. The program allows eligible Lincoln Park residential neighbors to park on-campus during off-peak hours, FREE of charge during the academic year.

In addition to the free program, area residents can purchase a 24-hour Clifton Parking Garage (only) permit. See the Rules and Regulations for details. 

Lincoln Park homeowners who reside within the following boundaries are eligible for the program: Altgeld (north) - Armitage (south) - Halsted (east) - Wayne (west).  The homeowner must reside at the property address within the boundaries of the program. There are a limited number of permits available to the first 300 participants. Participation is limited to one permit per household. Proof of residency is required at the time of registration (both walk-up and mail).
