Parking at Chatham, much like parking in the rest of Pittsburgh, is not readily available and tends to be expensive. Due to the nature of Chatham's campus, few parking spots are available. Students with parking passes can park in either the Upper Campus lots or the lots on Fifth Avenue (if they live in the campus apartments) at any time. For students without a parking pass, visitor parking is available in all Upper Campus lots from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. on weekdays and is open on weekends.
The bad news is if you park on campus without a permit, you are more than likely going to get saddled with a ticket, which can cost from $35 for a Chatham citation to around $60 for a state citation. The good news is that there is a decent amount of off-campus parking available. Shady Avenue, College Street, and Maryland Avenue are all within walking distance of campus and have free street parking. Students just have to be aware of when street cleaning is scheduled and move their vehicles on those days—or they might just end up with that ticket anyway.
