Bowie State University has plenty of parking lots for students and faculty, although there is some difficulty in finding a parking space at times. Parking for students is at the student's convenience, with parking lots at the Business Building, MLK Building, Center for Learning and Technology, Leonidas James Complex, and some residence halls.

There are some parking lots that students can park in freely—but at their own risk. Many upperclassmen know of these places and may share them with new students.
