It's no secret that parking can be a challenge at UVU. What does seem to be a secret
to many is that it doesn't have to be. It just takes planning. What follows are tips
and best practices for bringing a vehicle on campus. Before you get too deep into
the list, here are a few online resources Parking Services provides:
The Sorensen Center Visitor Lot is closed permanently, so visitors have two options
as alternates to the old SC visitor pay lot: First, they may stop by the main parking
office in the Facilities Complex at 936 S. 400 W. (across the street from Lakeridge
Junior High) and obtain a free visitor day permit that allows them to park in any
student or employee zone on campus.
Second, they may also come to the Lakeside Visitor’s Lot (See Map A Below), which
is an hourly pay lot. This is the lot just south of the Woodbury School of Business,
right off the main roundabout. Here, visitors will be able to park as they need and
simply pay the $2 per hour rate. If that lot happens to be full, check in with the
parking booth attendant and they will be able to assist you in getting a visitor permit
and get you parked as quickly and conveniently as possible. Read more about our visitor
parking procedure on the Visitor Parking Page.
General Parking Tips
- Congestion is highest between classes, so avoid arriving/departing at the top of the
hour. If it’s possible, schedule your events at the half-hour, i.e. 8:30 a.m. instead
of 9 a.m.
- Preparedness and communication are key for campus events; please use the contact numbers
below to ensure not only that your group has proper instructions for parking but also
that the UVU campus community has made necessary preparations prior to your arrival.
Roadside digital signage, for example, can be arranged through Parking Services to
direct your guests to the correct lots.
- UVU offers a continuous shuttle service for its students. Shuttle service for events
can be arranged through UVU Parking Services for a cost.
Tips for Cars
- UVU offers two large lots for large groups: L14 (500 stalls) and L9 (600 stalls).

- UVU’s south roundabout entrance (off University Parkway) is frequently congested.
If you are arriving southbound on I-15, it is recommended that you exit on Orem Center
Street and access campus via 1200 West. If you are arriving northbound on I-15, or
westbound on University Parkway, you can also access UVU at 400 West (across the street
from Krispy Kreme). (See Map A Below)
- Do not bring/invite buses to campus without first notifying UVU Parking Services.
- It is mandatory that chaperones/event coordinators and bus drivers have cell phone
- Buses are not allowed to park on the main UVU campus Monday through Friday. They are
allowed to pick up/drop off at campus venues, but if they wish to park for any amount
of time, they have to use the Health Professions/West Campus lot or the Business Resource
Center west lot. (See Map A Below)
- Buses delivering people to the UCCU Center or Brent Brown Ballpark should arrive via
College Drive (just south of 800 South) and drop off guests in the UCCU Center Visitor
Lot (even for the Ballpark). No drop-offs are allowed on McKay Drive or on the road
between Lots L3 and L4. (See Map B Below)
