    Pay for parking is available in the parking lot north of the Lory Student Center. Other options include taking the MAX bus to the CSU campus (University station) utilizing the parking lots for MAX at either the South Transit Center just south of College and Harmony or the parking lot by the old K-Mart building at College and Drake.
