Tips for parking when space is limited

  1. Arrive early for your classes 
  2. Use the parking areas that tend to have the most available spots:
  3. Consider car-pooling.
  4. Consider taking public transportation (Adelphi offers free shuttle service). Schedules are available online and through our AU2GO mobile app.
  5. In an effort to help our environment and improve our air quality, Adelphi University has joined forces with Clean Air New York. You will be notified by email of Air Quality Action Days which will alert the Adelphi community when air quality is predicted to be in the unhealthy range. This will signal people who have any type of breathing difficulties to stay inside as much as possible. The Department of Public Safety and Transportation has also designated 40 parking spots in Parking Field 2 for fuel-efficient vehicles and carpoolers to assist in the effort to cut down on emissions that pollute our environment.
