There are many ways to get to the JKU. The biggest question students ask themselves when driving to campus is: Where can I park?  The JKU campus is a car-free zone, however there are parking lots located close to campus.

There are two parking lots near campus and one underground car park located below the Science Park. In total, there are approximately 1,465 parking spaces available, of which about 400 spots are for short-term parkers. The rest is reserved for long-term parkers.  You can access the main campus P1 parking lot from Altenberger Straße or from  Mengerstraße.
