As a parent, can I park on campus when I come to visit?

es. All visitors must stop at the Parking Office in Keddy House on Wyman Way to provide their vehicle information. Parents/visitors coming for the day or a few hours can park in the Visitor’s Lot (located next to Keddy House). Overnight visitors will be given a guest permit for the Winchester lot. The student host must be with you when registering for an overnight permit.


Where can we load and unload materials from our car?

A number of spaces across campus have been designated as short-term loading/unloading zones. We ask that visitors please abide by all campus parking and vehicle operation policies. Unattended vehicles parked inappropriately may be ticketed and/or towed.


Can first-year students bring cars?

Unfortunately, parking is extremely limited and therefore first-year residential students are not permitted to bring their cars to campus. There are independently owned parking lots throughout Keene within walking distance of campus that provide parking for a fee.


How will my student get around Keene without a car?

Many businesses are within walking distance of the campus. The City Express bus, which is free to Keene State students, goes to several shopping areas in Keene. “Green Bikes” are available for check-out through the Mason Library using the Keene Link Library Card. Helmets are also available.
