 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.


Plaza Garage LPR (License Plate Recognition) is Live!

Anyone who has a parking access card will see the garage gates automatically rise when pulling up to the ticket dispenser and exit card reader. This is the result of the new LPR system that identifies your vehicle based on your license plate number(s) on file.

Those who park in the Plaza Garage should note that the garage will be undergoing significant modernization efforts in 2018 to provide three functional elevators. Please be aware of changes impacting foot traffic and restricted parking in posted construction zones.
