Parking & Parking Passes

Parking in the gated lot: CTS has a small 50-car parking lot that is shared by students, staff, and faculty who pay for spots during normal business hours, 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The parking lot is open and available for guests and the CTS Community to park for free after 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. Current students can pay to park in the lot by semester. During intensive weeks, CTS students can pay for a spot by the week. During weeks when there are intensive courses, students can pay for parking by the week. Please contact the finance office to purchase a pass.

Parking in the metered visitors’ spots: Students can park in the visitors’ spots during the weekday by feeding the meter on an hourly basis. Please note that the meters only take quarters, have a three-hour limit, and must be fed again after this time runs out. You can request change at the reception desk. The visitors’ spots are first come, first served. If a car is parked at a meter and hasn’t paid, it is subject to ticketing and towing.

Additional parting options: All of the street parking around the building is free, non-permitted. There is a free University of Chicago parking lot with 100+ spots at 60th and Stony Island, only a short walk away from CTS.

ID Badges

All students are provided with a CTS Student ID Badge at Orientation, or shortly thereafter. Your badge is required to check out materials from the Lapp Learning Commons. If you lose you badge, please email Michele Carr. Replacement badges are issued at a cost of $20.
