Parking Privileges

Parking Privileges

Retired academic staff are entitled to free access, on request, to surface parking lots on weekends only, and a 50% discount on parking at Brooks garage. A pass must be obtained ahead of time from the Parking and Sustainable Transportation Office located at 139 Louis-Pasteur, room 133, upon presentation of your UID card. For current parking rates at Brooks garage, see the University Parking web page. Click on the tab "Parking Services," and go to "Vistors and daily parking rates."

To obtain their 50% Brooks parking discount, 65+ retirees need to stop by the Parking Office to pay for parking for the day they come to campus. Unfortunately, Brooks tends to fill up very quickly in the morning, and space availability there doesn't ease up until later in the afternoon. Please note the office hours of the Parking Office, which are different during the summer months:
