Current students are eligible for 24-hour parking at the Arbor garage in Riverdale, and students registered for summer classes with a home address outside of Manhattan may apply for commuter parking in the International Affairs Building garage.

Authorization to Charge Employee Parking to a University Account (not for daily parking)
As per University policy, the primary use of the limited space in the Morningside garages is to provide regular parking for eligible faculty, and after they have been accommodated, senior administrators, and accordingly daily parking is extremely limited during the academic year, particularly on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. When there is sufficient space for daily parking, it is made available to visitors to campus participating in classes, meetings, and events and to faculty and administrators in connection to a specific University business purpose, and a $15 daily charge applies. Requests should be made no later than noon one business day prior; earlier requests are greatly appreciated. Same-day emergency requests, when they can be accommodated, carry a $15 additional fee. Should space be available, it will be assigned in either the IAB garage, located on West 118th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, or the Engineering Terrace Garage, located at Amsterdam Avenue and West 119th Street.
