The Parking program is a system of controlled and designated lots designed to provide parking that will give faculty and staff access to classrooms and offices, students the ability to commute, and visitors the ability to participate in University activities. To this end, the University at Albany has developed parking regulations which are designed to meet these requirements as well as the special needs of individual community members. These rules are set by the President of the University and in consultation with the University Council and/or the SUNY Board of Trustees, when appropriate. Compliance with these regulations is encouraged by fair and consistent enforcement.
The Mass Transit system offers bus service on all UAlbany and CDTA buses at no charge to students registered for the current term and NYS University employees. Those not eligible include: Volunteers/Visiting & Research Scholars/Rockefeller Institute of Government/Interns/Empire State Fellows. All UAlbany buses are equipped with GPS devices in order for passengers to obtain real-time bus information and to add a level of safety and security. The UAlbany bus system covers a wide area including the east campus, downtown & uptown campuses, as well as apartment & shopping shuttles. CDTA covers the entire Capital District.
