Parking Off Campus

Most local streets surrounding the campus have restricted parking regulations, which are enforced by the Garden City Police Department. Please be considerate of our neighbors and park on campus, not in the village streets.

Tips for Parking When Space is Limited

  1. Arrive early for your classes
  2. Use the parking areas that tend to be underutilized
    • Parking Field #7 (Behind Chapman, Linen, and Eddy Halls)
    • Parking Field #8 (Across Cambridge Avenue, next to the Hy Weinberg Center)
    • Parking Field #9 (Garden City Pool) and utilize free Panther Express shuttle service to campus.
  3. Consider taking public transportation (Adelphi offers free shuttle service from local transportation centers). Schedules are available online and through our AU2GO mobile app.
  4. 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.
