Additional Information:

  • The Clifton Parking Garage will be open to the public and Area Residents beginning September 1, 2022.

  • We will no longer be issuing physical “hang tags” for homeowners. Your license plate will serve as your campus-parking permit. You must have your access card to swipe in and out of the garage. Please make sure your vehicle is registered with the correct information prior to parking on campus. 

  • A DePaul access card is required for entrance to the Clifton Parking Garage and will be given with the parking pass.

  • To apply or renew your permit please call the Parking Office at 773.325.7275 to make an appointment. Currently, the building is closed and you will have to be let in. Please remember to wear a face covering and maintain a physical distance of 6 feet while on campus. 
  • If you already have an access card please bring it with you when you re-register or include the card number and your e-mail address on the application, so that we can program the card to give access for the new academic year. Lost access cards will incur a $15 replacement charge.
