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 are also able to purchase a 24 Hour Clifton Parking Garage (ONLY) permit. See the Clifton Regulation​s​ 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).
