Metered parking is available off Riverside Avenue, west of the planetarium. This parking is not managed by Ball State University.
If you are visiting the planetarium Monday-Thursday from 7am-7pm or on a Friday from 7am-5:30pm, you may request a free permit for one of the two parking spaces reserved for the planetarium in lot R11 (depending on availability). Permits may be reserved ahead of time or they will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the visit. Contact us to you inquire about availability and to secure a reservation. The parking spaces are located in lot R11, just west of the planetarium (see map). You are required to display a paper parking permit in order to park in these spaces (obtain inside from planetarium staff upon arrival).
You may also purchase a visitor parking permit online if you are a member of the general public or not affiliated with Ball State. A permit costs $5 per day and may be purchased online by setting up a guest account with a valid email address. Parking is permitted only in the yellow and green marked lots on campus and does not allow for parking at a meter or in the paid areas of the garages.
