Parking and Walking Directions

Visitor parking is free for the first 2 hours on the ground level of the North Deck parking garage servicing the American Tobacco Campus but visitors must register with the parking machine or via mobile app. See below:

Effective January 1, 2017, ATC will charge for parking in the North Deck.

• Visitors park in a visitors parking space and note their plate number and the parking space.

Visitor will input that information into the parking machine, or use the mobile app from Park Mobile.

• Rates are as follows:
o First 2 hours is FREE, but visitor will still have to register (see bullets one and two)
o Hour 3 is $2
o Hour 4 is an additional $1
o Hour 5 – rest of the day is flat $9. $9 is the max you can pay for the day.

If security audits the machine and finds a vehicle that is not registered for that day, they will boot the vehicle. $100 to remove the boot.

Additional parking can be found on the ground level of both the South and East Decks, however, we recommend parking in the North Deck on Pettigrew Street which is the closest to the Office of Counsel.

On the map below, the “Red Star” is the Lucky Strike Building (labeled Duke CE).  The “Yellow Triangles” are areas where ATC visitor parking is available on the ground level.  The “Red Triangle” is a pay parking garage across the railroad tracks.
