Parking Information

Parking Map

Validation parking for Carnegie Center patrons is now available in the Transylvania University parking lot on Upper Street AFTER 4:00 PM, between Third Street and Mechanic Street. The parking lot is marked TU General Parking & TU Bookstore Parking.

Validations are only available at the Carnegie Center front desk, and you must pick up a validation prior to parking. We are unable to provide validation before 4:00 pm. Free and metered street parking is also often available on Mill, Market, Second, and Third Streets. Carnegie Center validations are no longer accepted at the Featherstone Garage on Upper Street (you will be subject to ticketing or towing). Please refrain from parking in spots reserved for staff members.

How to obtain & use your validation:

  • Come to the Carnegie Center front desk. We will give you a signed parking pass on a specifically colored sheet of paper. Signature and valid date are required from a Carnegie staff member.
  • Display your signed & dated pass in your front windshield.
  • Only one pass will be distributed on the day of use, and the pass is valid only for that day.

Street parking is generally available on either side of Gratz Park or neighboring streets.

As a service to our guests, the Carnegie Center has designed a map of 240 parking spots within a 5 minute walk of the Carnegie Center. Copies of the “Guide to Local Parking” are available at the front desk, or you may download a PDF by clicking here.
