    • Great question! Our parking lot is always available (without a permit) to those attending the Newman Center or Newman events. Also, the Carbondale city parking lot on the other side of Washington St (in front of the Center) can be used any time on Sundays and after 6:oopm the rest of the week.

  1. Hi! I was wondering if students who are not residing at the Newman Center can still take part in activities. I would love to get more involved with you guys but I live off campus. Thanks!

    • Amy, we would love to help get you more involved. Most of our active students do not reside here at Newman, and you are always welcome to use our parking lot whenever you are visiting Newman. Please stop in and introduce yourself and we can help you find some activities that you are interested in.
