Effective Feb. 1: The testing of the new gate arm technology is underway at the DUC, Snow Way, Millbrook and West Campus garages. Until the system is fully functional and meets the highest standards, the team will continue to provide on-site support. We thank you for your patience and hope to be fully operational soon.

Passport Parking, an app that individuals can download to their smartphones in order to pay for parking by the hour, is now available in designated visitor spaces located on the fourth floor of the Wallace Garage and along the west and south sides of the main building at North Campus. The app can be downloaded for free via iTunes and Google Play.

The parking spaces along Forsyth Blvd have been designated as “perimeter red” spaces, which require a red permit Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Outside of those hours, no permit is required.

The West Campus shuttle’s east end bus stop is now in the parking lot in front of Goldfarb Hall.
This will replace the bus stop on the south side of Forsyth, eliminating the need to cross Forsyth.

No parking on Hoyt Drive
Parking is prohibited along the north and south entries to Hoyt Drive. These areas are for drop off and pick up only. Cars left unattended are compromising the designated fire lanes and blocking traffic. Those in violation will be towed.

Between the hours of 5 p.m. to 7 a.m., no permit is required to park in any yellow space in any zone.

Reminder – East End of the Danforth Campus closed to parking
Parking is no longer be available on the east end of the Danforth Campus but spaces are available in the core of campus, on the South 40, and at West Campus.
