Parking Garages

Parking Garages

There are five 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.

We accept cash, CrimsonCard, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa.
