Getting Around

Parking on Hillsborough Street is free after 8:00 p.m. Monday - Friday, including all day Saturday and Sunday. Parking is free on NC State University's campus after 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday including all day Saturday and Sunday.

Hillsborough Street is N.C. State University's gateway to downtown Raleigh and, as such, can be challenged at times for parking. However, visit often enough and you will figure out how to "park like a local." Better yet, leave your car at home and walk, take the bus, ride a scooter or ride a bike.
