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.

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.
When you exit the parking garage into the courtyard, take the walkway in front of the Hill Building which will be on your left. (Follow signs to the DPAC.) Then you will come to the Old Bull Building (white brick next to a silver silo) and the Lucky Strike Building is the red brick building across from the Old Bull Building closest to Blackwell Street.
Enter our office from the courtyard (facing you coming from the ATC North Parking Deck), up the ramp and under an awning, the first door is labeled Duke University Office of Counsel, use the call box at our door to enter, then take the elevator to the 4th floor.
If you will be visiting our office, we recommend you park on the ground level of the North Deck. If visitor parking should become unavailable at any of the parking decks, the City of Durham has on street metered parking as an option.
