RISD CE faculty and students may park in any dedicated RISD parking lots after 6 pm weeknights and all day on weekends, year-round. During the workday (M-F), RISD parking lots are reserved for RISD employees only. We also ask that you please avoid parking in any spots marked “Reserved 24/7 for RISD vehicles.” Cars parked in designated handicapped spaces require the State H-P emblem placard; all others will be towed. RISD is not responsible for damage or theft to vehicles parked in RISD lots.
Discounted parking may be available in downtown Metro Park lots for RISD CE students. Simply bring your course registration statement with you each time you attend class, and present it to the parking attendant to see if the discounted rate applies. If applicable, the daytime rate is typically $15, and after 5 pm, $7. You must have your course registration statement with you in order to be eligible to receive the discount.
On-street metered parking is also available.
