Parking & Traffic


Parking on WPI's Campus property is a privilege extended to members of the WPI community who have registered their vehicles with the WPI Police Department, in accordance with WPI's Parking and Traffic Regulations. These parking and traffic regulations apply to all personnel including all faculty, staff, students and other persons who operate any motor vehicles on campus or other land of the College.

These traffic regulations have been established in an effort to maintain a clear and safe path for all Campus Community members and visitors. The implementation of these regulations by no means is meant to hinder and/or deter parking on campus. Their purpose is to encourage the safe operation of motor vehicles while on campus, to maintain emergency vehicle access, to assist with pedestrian safety, and to maintain parking consistency.  

All WPI faculty, staff, students, conferees, guests, and groups who operate any motor vehicles on campus or other land belonging to the university, are required to read, understand, and abide by the traffic rules and regulations as outlined in this brochure and upon posted signage. 

 Because of the limited number of parking spaces on campus, registered vehicles are not guaranteed a parking space. Parking is on a first come, first served basis.
