Student parking is heaviest Tuesday through Thursday during the academic year. When planning large events, this should be taken into consideration as it could mean there will not be enough parking for either students or guests. Guest parking permits are available though Campus Safety and Security.


Tents in excess of 200 square feet (10x20) or canopies in excess of 400 square feet (20x20) require a permit with the Village of River Forest. Open this link for the village Tent Application.
Completed applications must be returned with the coinciding fee to:
River Forest Fire Department
Fire Prevention
400 Park Ave.
River Forest, IL  60305-1726


After event approval, bonfire permits can be secured through the River Forest Fire Department at 708-366-8500. They will review the planned size, amount of firewood, extinguishment and clean-up.
