PARKING – STUDENTS, STAFF AND VISITORS
The School of the Arts does not provide parking for students. If a student drives to school, they must secure on-street parking and comply with the City of Rochester’s parking restrictions posted on the signs at the curb. Parking at the Memorial Art Gallery and the American Red Cross without a permit or in either SOTA Faculty parking lots on University Avenue or Prince Street is strictly prohibited. Those lots are off-limits during school hours. However, students may park in either SOTA parking lots after school hours. All illegally parked cars will be towed at the owner’s expense. Students cannot leave class to move their cars.
Before 2:30 PM: All visitors to SOTA must sign in with the Safety Security Office in the foyer with the location, make, model and license plate number of their car.
All other visitors to SOTA must park on the street and comply with the City of Rochester’s parking restrictions posted on the signs at the curb. Parking at the Memorial Art Gallery and the American Red Cross or in either SOTA Faculty parking lots at University Avenue or Prince Street is strictly prohibited.
SOTA staff members, substitute teachers and visitors are no longer able to park in the Memorial Art Gallery. If you park at any of these locations, you will be subject to their policy on ticketing and towing. Be advised that ticketing and towing will be strictly enforced. You can choose to find on-street parking on Prince Street or University at your discretion. Please observe posted signage for appropriate parking times.
