Parking at Central Piedmont

Welcome to the new semester!

Please consider carpooling or using public transportation, and plan to arrive early to campus to allow enough time to park and find your class. Traffic is heavy during this time of the year, and there are construction and maintenance projects on most CPCC campuses – particularly Central Campus – that could cause issues. We strongly encourage you to carpool or use public transportation as Central Campus traffic volumes adjust during the first two weeks of class (please see the CATS / CPCC transportation “cheat sheet” at the bottom of this message and attached)

Also, consider visiting your campus ahead of time to get comfortable with your parking and classroom locations before classes start if this will be your first semester with the college.

Download the CPCC app to see all CPCC campus maps – or go directly to the Central Campus map for more specific information – and follow #cpccparking on Twitter.
