Danforth Underground Garage

Parking is available in the Danforth underground garage, located beneath the Danforth University Center, for both visitors and permit holders.

The first level and ramp leading to the second level of the Danforth Underground Garage is restricted to Admissions/Visitor parking only. Parking by annual permit holders is strictly prohibited in this area. The second and third levels of the Danforth Underground Garage are designated for annual permit parking only.

Until the implementation of the new PARCS (pull and pay garage equipment) later this year, visitors must display a daily permit (available at for purchase at the Parking & Transportation Office on North Campus) to park in visitor spaces. Once PARCS is implemented, visitors will need to pull a ticket and display it on their dashboard and park in the area designated for Admissions/Visitor parking. If a ticket is pulled to gain entry to an access-controlled area, the vehicle owner/operator is responsible for any/all fees incurred.

Validation tickets (for use once PARCS is implemented) for the Danforth University Center Garage are available to university departments for distribution to visitors.

For more information about Danforth University Center Garage validation tickets, please contact the office of Parking Services at 314-935-5601. The Danforth University Center Garage is staffed by an attendant from 8 a.m. – 12:30 a.m., Monday – Friday.
