Parking Policies

CRC and Master's Members have access to park in the CRC Lot, East Campus Garage and the Perkins Street Lot on East Campus. Members will receive a parking hang tag to display in their rear view mirror.

CRC members now have 10 designated parking spots in the CRC lot that are reserved for them Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Please note : Paying for a CRC or Master's membership does not guarantee a parking spot for our members, just the access to park in the designated lots when available. There are instances where the lots will be unavailable for University events or programs. The parking lots may also be full from time to time as faculty and staff have access to park in these same lots. To view parking lots members are eligible to park in, please go to: UMass Lowell Maps.

CRC and Master's members interested in using Costello Pool can request additional parking access for the Riverside Lot on North Campus near the pool. If you would like this access added to your CRC ID card, simply contact us!
