Most streets around the CIT have parking meters that accept credit cards as well as change. They offer a maximum of two hours of parking, at which point you must move your car.

Brown has a Visitor Parking Lot on the upper level of the Power Street Garage at 110 Power Street. This lot is serviced by a pay station located at the Power Street entrance and another at the rear of the lot, near Brook Street. They accept credit cards and bills but do not give change. This detailed map of the Brown campus can help familiarize you with the area.

There are parking spaces on Charlesfield, Thayer, Benevolent, George, Brook, and Brown Streets that are for Brown employees only from 8 AM to 12 PM (see the purple lines on the map). Parking in one of these "Brown Permit Required" spots will result in a fine.
