Tillinghast Place

Tillinghast Place parking is open to current RISD faculty, staff and students. Daily parking area hours are 7 am–7 pm.

For the safety of the RISD community, parking is accessible by RISD ID to those who completed the online public health training, participated in baseline testing and have continued with surveillance testing. Restrooms will remain closed until further notice. Tillinghast Place should not be used as a site for conducting academic courses.

Take note that local law enforcement monitors streets surrounding the grounds and will issue tickets for illegally parked vehicles.

As with other campus spaces, community members must follow key safety measures when at Tillinghast Place:

  • Wear a cloth face covering.
  • Keep at least six feet of physical distance.
  • Frequently wash hands and use hand sanitizer.
  • Do not gather in groups larger than those stated in current RISD guidelines.
  • Do not bring guests who are not covered by the above guidelines.

RISD may adjust operating hours and access if conditions change.
