Accessible Visitor Parking

Visitors displaying a state issued handicap placard may utilize handicap spaces designated in various visitor parking areas on campus at no cost. Illinois Tech Employees, Students, and Rental Property Tenants with a state-issued placard may park in visitor lots to facilitate closer proximity. In this case, a paid Illinois Tech permit is still required.

Event Parking

Visitor parking is generally first-come, first-served in visitor pay lots. Groups of (15) or more are encouraged to coordinate parking arrangements with the ACaPS Office. Please complete an Event Parking Request Form at least (2) weeks prior to your event date, but no later than (72) hours to improve our ability to offer the best arrangements for your event.

Illinois Tech departments that wish to sponsor official guests may sign up for a departmental parking code for the pay stations. Contact the Access, Card, and Parking Services Office for details and pricing: 312.567.8968 or
