The Colorado School of Mines is a pay-to-park campus from 7 am until 5 pm, Monday through Friday for students, employees and visitors, as well as contractors and visiting professionals. Parking Services will help you understand where you are allowed to park and how to get a parking permit. We ask our visitors and community members to please observe all posted signs and curb markings to reduce the possibility of getting a parking citation.
