Center Street, Arlington, TX, 76019 (located next to the College Park Center), with additional parking at Lot 45 (south of the Lipscomb resident dorm) and Lot 53 (located at the intersection of Mitchell and Pecan).

Please enter your vehicle information in the link below to obtain a parking e-permit for your vehicle to park on campus during your event.
