Parking & Traffic Guidelines

Parking at the Westchester Campuses

Parking is only available on the Pleasantville and White Plains Law School campuses. All students, faculty, staff, contract employees and visitors must display a valid parking permit or temporary hang tag and are obligated to adhere to the University’s parking regulations (PDF) at all times while on campus.

Parking is limited and obtaining a parking permit does not guarantee the availability or location of a parking space. The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests with the motor vehicle operator. Lack of space is not a valid reason for violating Pace University’s parking regulations.

To request a parking permit or appeal a citation visit the Pace University Parking Portal.

Questions about parking and traffic at Pace University may be directed to traffic@pace.edu.
