The Colburn School currently provides a limited number of on-campus parking spots without charge as an amenity for our students and families. However, with a student population of 1,700, parking is not guaranteed. Spaces in the garage on Grand Avenue/Lot 1 are available on a first-come, first-served basis each day. The garage will often fill up, particularly on Wednesdays and Saturdays which are our busiest days of classes. When the garage is full, students and families should park in a nearby paid lot.
In the past, the Olive lot has been used for overflow parking, however this creates a fire hazard for our students, faculty, and staff. For safety reasons, overflow parking in Olive will no longer be permitted beginning Saturday, October 14. Please read the tips below on how to approach parking when coming to campus and a list of affordable nearby lots.
