The Evanston Parking Office is currently closed with staff working remotely. Parking permit requirements and garage fees have been waived.  All campus lots and the North and South Campus parking garages are open for parking. For questions please contact us at parking@northwestern.edu or 847-491-3319 which will be monitored and calls returned.

It is your responsibility to notify Parking Services if you no longer wish to park on campus or if you terminate employment. Remove the sticker(s) from the vehicle (a razor blade scraper works well to remove stickers). Please photograph the removed sticker(s) and email the photo to parking@northwestern.edu. Please include your name and employee ID number. It is okay if the sticker breaks, tears or is in pieces. Refunds/cancellations are processed only upon receipt of a photo of the removed sticker(s).
