North Central College added a new parking pavilion on the south end of campus, near the intersection of Brainard Street and Highland Avenue, at 415 S. Brainard Street.
By constructing a parking pavilion on the south end of campus, the College aims to:
- Increase the College’s overall on-campus parking capacity
- Improve parking safety and convenience for students, faculty, staff and visitors
- Increase on-campus parking capacity and efficiency for large campus events
- Address on-street parking concerns within the neighborhood
There are several City of Naperville parking regulations that impact on-street parking throughout the College’s neighborhood. The Naperville Police Department routinely monitors and regulates street parking, which is permitted in specific areas and for a limited time (often no more than 4 hours at a time). The Naperville Police Department will issue parking citations for vehicles that violate the ordinances and will tow vehicles that block neighborhood driveways. Overnight street parking is not allowed between 2-5 a.m. It is the College’s intention to be good neighbors with the residents who live near campus.
The College understands that tailgating is an important part of the spectator experience and at times individuals/groups are interested in holding picnics on campus. North Central College’s tailgating & picnicking rules identified below are designed to enhance your safety, ensure that tailgating remains a part of the North Central College spectator experience for years to come and to allow guests to picnic on campus (with prior permission from the College).
All tailgating activities are to occur in the practice field located just west of Loomis Street and Porter Avenue. The tailgate lot will open at 10 a.m. on game days and close two hours after the conclusion of the game or 10 p.m.
For complete tailgating rules, please view the Athletics Visitor Information page.
