Parking garages

There are five parking garages on campus. All garages open at 7 a.m. (gates are lowered) and closing times vary by garage. When garages are open, you will need to display a permit or pay to park.

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

If you leave a garage without paying, you will be subject to a $30 fine.

Vehicles without a valid EM-P permit displayed are not permitted to park overnight in a garage and may be issued an overnight parking citation prior to 7 a.m.
