Parking Garages

Parking Garages

There are six parking garages on campus.

All gated facilities require hourly payment or valid permit display beginning at 7 a.m. when the gates are lowered. 

Overnight parking is not permitted for any vehicle that does not display a valid EMP permit or a permit that is provided for 24 hour parking in a specific garage. Citations are issued to vehicles without a valid permit and parked prior to the opening of garages, at 7am, Monday through Friday.

If you enter a garage on a weekday before 7 a.m. without a valid EM-P permit, even though the gate is raised you need to take a ticket. You will need this ticket to pay when you exit after 7 a.m.

Parking is free from 6 p.m. on Friday through 7 a.m. on Monday, unless otherwise noted. If you have an EM-P permit, you may access the garages free of charge any time.

Gated facilities require hourly payment upon exit when the gates are lowered, unless a valid permit is scanned for entry. Non-gated facilities require a valid permit be displayed beginning at 7 a.m. weekdays.

We accept CrimsonCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, or Visa. Beginning June 1, 2021, cash payments will not be accepted.
