There are over 500 parking spaces available surrounding campus, which are free to use for DigiPen students, faculty, and staff who display a DigiPen parking sticker on their vehicles (see Parking Policies below). The parking lots can become very crowded, so we highly recommend that you consider alternate forms of transportation or carpooling.

You may park in any space marked with a “dP” logo, as well as any parking spaces not marked with another business’s name. Do not park in spaces marked and reserved for other surrounding businesses.

If you are expecting any visitors, they should park in the visitor parking in front of the Main Campus and check in at the Front Desk.

Additional Parking - Monday-Friday Only

Additional parking is available across Willows Road at Overlake Christian Church (OCC), Lot D. This parking is also free, but is only available from Monday 5:00 a.m. through Friday 11:59 p.m. Vehicles parked outside of Lot D or left in additional parking over the weekend will be towed, as ordered by OCC, in order to make room for the Redmond Saturday Market.

Note that additional parking options may change from semester to semester, so please refer to this section periodically to ensure that you are parking in a designated area.
