Parking Information

Options for Parking at the Institute

The lot attached to the Institute is an SIU Carbondale Blue Lot, meaning only blue decal eligible faculty and staff may park there during the hours of 8 AM - 4 PM. 

Students must park accordingly in parking lots assigned to their color of decal; no exceptions will be made to park in the lot outside of the Institute during business hours.

Our lot is checked regularly by SIU Carbondale Parking Division and you will be issued a ticket if parked in the wrong color decal parking lot. 

Event Parking

If you (non-campus affiliated only) are attending an event or meeting at the Institute during business hours, you may be issued a guest parking pass by an Institute employee. Parking after 4 PM is open to everyone.

If you are attending an event at the SIU Carbondale Student Center, the lot in front of the center includes several visitors (non-campus affiliated) and metered parking spots.
