Maps and Directions
Monday - Friday 8-5
Free parking is almost impossible Monday - Friday 8-5. It's usually best to park at one of the patient parking decks and pay the hourly rate.
After Hours and Weekends
The safest places to park are in parking garages 1 or 2; see the Duke transportation webpage for fees and hours. Free parking is available weekdays after 5 PM and on weekends on many gated lots on campus. Use your Duke ID or your parking pass to open the gates. However, the on Research Drive is the closest lot to the Library but (as of 1/5/15), the gates to this garage will always be closed unless you have a Duke parking pass for any other lot. If you need evening or weekend access and do NOT have a Duke parking permit, contact Duke Parking and Transportation for assistance or call 919.684.7275.
