Pratt St. Garage Renovation starting April 12, 2021 (updated Feb. 4,2022)

Pratt St. garage structural renovations and upgrades are underway and have a tentative completion of August 2022. Phases 2 and 3 began in late December on the upper levels of the garage. A varying total of 170 spaces will be restricted for use throughout the facility as repairs are made, thus reducing overall garage capacity. Occasionally, vehicles will be redirected to Penn St. garage as daily capacity is reached. Facility hours and card access are being modified in Penn St garage to assist with any potential overflow. Pratt parkers will be allowed to park in Penn St. garage during normal operating hours, which have been extended to 12 midnight, Monday-Friday.

It's Time to Plan!

Know what to do in the event of an emergency garage closure BEFORE you come to campus.

During an emergency — such as winter weather, a hurricane, civil unrest, or a power outage — all 24-hour campus garages will remain open. However, non-24-hour garages will close and parkers will need to park in specific garages.
