Parking on the University of Washington campus:
There are several parking lots near Mechanical Engineering. Lots C- 12, C-15 and C-17 are close by. (C-15 is right behind Mechanical Engineering; C-17 is right across from it.
Fees for parking on campus:
On evenings (after 5 p.m.), and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. till noon, it costs $5 to park on the U.W. campus. You pay the fee as you drive onto the campus, and get a parking permit to put in your window. Ask to park in the parking lots listed above if possible (C-12, C-15 and C-17).
Parking is also free on Sundays (all day)
Parking is free on Saturdays after noon.
Don’t want to pay for parking?
If you would like to avoid paying for parking, I recommend coming over early, finding the building, then driving off campus and finding a place to park and walking to the building.
Whether you decided to park on campus (and pay for parking) or park off campus (and walk to the building), I recommend coming over early the first day, to give yourself time to find the building, etc.
