Located at 400 W. Lexington St. — $33 prepaid monthly. A limited number of spaces will be available. You must know your vehicle tag number or bring a valid vehicle registration, your One Card, or letter of acceptance to your school as proof of your student status. The Lexington Roof permits cannot be purchased online; you must come to the Cashier's Office to obtain this permit.
The cost of the daily permit is $5 and the daily parking fee is $5 per day. Students will need to link their UMB One Card to receive the student rate. Students also may link a debit or credit card to eliminate the need to carry cash. You will need to pull a ticket.
On the first day you arrive on campus, go to the Lexington Garage displaying your new student permit. If you don’t purchase your permit before the first day of school, just inform the attendant that you are a new student, pay the $5 daily parking fee, and visit the Cashier's Office to purchase your new permit.
After 4 p.m. on weekdays, students who have already paid for parking in Lexington Garage may move their vehicle to any other garage, if so desired, without having to pay for parking again. Evening students arriving on campus after 4 p.m. on weekdays and all weekend may park in any facility and pay the student rate of $5 when displaying a valid student permit. All students must remove their cars by 9 a.m. or you will be considered a visitor and charged the maximum visitor rate.
The dormitory resident parking fee per semester is $300. If you pay for the entire school year before or by the date provided by the Cashier's Office, the cost is $550. Dormitory residents are allowed 24-hour parking, so they may not purchase a daily permit. More details are available at the Residence Life Office at 410-706-5523 or Parking Services at 410-706-5518. Please visit the Parking and Transportation Services home page and click on Parking Information. Choose the Resident Student option, print out the application form, and bring the application to the Cashier's Office between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, for processing. If you will be living in the neighborhood but not in UMB housing, we cannot provide overnight parking for you. If you will be living at Fayette Square, your parking must come through Fayette Square and not the UMB Parking Office. Please contact the Fayette Square office at 410-706-5523 for parking information.
In Case of Emergency
If a shelter-in-place order is in effect, the doors on all UMB garages will be secured and no vehicles may go in or out. Please remain in place until further instruction.
The walking and van escorts and the UM shuttle are not in operation during a shelter-in-place order.
When the campus is closed, UM shuttle and the police escort services will not run. If the campus is closing early, the UM shuttle buses will leave the Pearl Street hub at the first scheduled time AFTER the time of closure and they will complete their routes if the situation permits. So that means, if the campus closes at 3 p.m., the last shuttle bus will leave the Pearl Street hub at the first listed time AFTER 3 p.m. NextBus should reflect the route closure on the schedule.
Yes, unless the evacuation order included instructions to the contrary.
Alternate routes home can be found on the Alternate Routes web page in the Office of Parking and Transportation Services website. In addition, several free navigation applications are available for your Android phone or iPhone. These services will provide not only maps but also assistance in finding the fastest route by avoiding traffic jams.
If you have not signed up to receive NextBus alerts, please do so. NextBus is your primary information source for the UM shuttle.
