CAUTION: There have been significant changes to parking on the streets surrounding the Newman Center:
York Street: York Street between Wesley and Iliff (that is, the entire block that contains the Newman Center) is no longer available for public parking. Only University Lot U permit holders are allowed to park in that block of York St. All others will be ticketed.
Handicapped Parking: The only handicapped parking is now located in the Newman Center parking garage. Previous street parking for handicapped vehicles is now by permit only.
Street Parking: Parking on the street in the DU area is generally limited to one-hour (without a resident permit) and this limit is strictly enforced by the Denver Police Department. Street parking not limited to one hour is generally over 4 or 5 blocks from the DU campus perimeter.
