Faculty and staff may park in any regular faculty/staff parking space (including the Eisenhower Deck) for up to 15 minutes with the vehicle's four-way flashers operating and a current staff parking permit properly displayed.


Students may park in the East Parking Deck, but if parking on weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. students must indicate to the entry kiosk attendant when attempting to park that they are visiting the Student Health Center. The fee for parking is $1 per hour.
