Location & Parking

The Newman Center is located on the campus of the University of Arizona at the Northeast corner of 2nd Street and Cherry Avenue.


The Newman Center has a very limited parking area for Mass and other church events, so please plan accordingly. 

Parking in the Newman Center parking lot Monday through Friday requires a parking permit which can be requested via an application at the front desk with priority given to registered and active members of the Newman Center. Temporary exceptions during the week (meeting with a Newman Center staff member, etc.) should be cleared at the Newman Center front desk ahead of time.  Applications for a Newman Center parking pass are accepted after July 1st for the upcoming academic school year. Summer passes are also available upon request.

The University Parking Lot just North of the Newman Center (University Parking Lot #4164) may be used after 5PM on weekdays and on Saturdays and Sundays as long as there are no special events such as athletic games or homecoming.  The University Parking Lots are by permit only from 8 AM – 5 PM on Monday – Friday and are strictly enforced.  

The Tucson Modern Streetcar has a stop right in front of our Chapel and can be used as an alternative form of travel to the church.

If you have any other questions about parking, please email newman@uacatholic.org.

Using the Newman Center parking lot for University sporting events is not permitted, with the exception of football games. The cost of parking during football games is $10, and all funds go towards ministries at the Newman Center.
