Welcome to Our Campus

Welcome to Carleton. We are glad to have you on campus and hope your visit is enjoyable. To help make your visit smooth, we offer this resource to help you with parking.

Our Unique Parking Environment

Carleton is a unique campus environment as the surrounding neighborhood blends with our campus. You will find parking opportunities both on Carleton property and on Northfield city streets. We have attached a campus parking map to help guide you in finding a place to park. Campus security manages parking on campus and the City of Northfield enforces parking regulations on city streets.

Please be aware that parking at Carleton is a shared venture between visitors, students, faculty, and staff. Generally, parking in campus lots is less available Monday-Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Students are restricted to their assigned parking lots Monday-Friday between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm during the academic year. The map shows assigned student parking. Please leave these spots available for students during the academic year. While the map identifies areas on campus for parking, some of the spaces in parking areas may be restricted by signs.

City street parking is available throughout Northfield. On days when there are a number of activities or large activities on campus, you may end up parking several blocks from the campus core.
