Parking Services - Welcome!

Student Parking

Ithaca College continually assesses its operations, procedures and policies in order to foster the incorporation of sustainability thinking and practice into its day-to-day management.  Our efforts continue to further our goal to create a "living learning" laboratory that models and reinforces what our students are learning about sustainability in their classrooms.   Furthermore Ithaca College recognizes the importance of strengthening the student connection to the College and laying the foundation for student success.  As a result we strongly urge students not to bring vehicles to campus, particularly during their first year.
