Visitor's Guide


The Forbes Garage and Lower Forbes reserved area are now open. Proximity badges will be required to enter and exit the garage. All 2015-2016 parking permit holders who have received their proximity badge may park in either the Forbes or Locust Garage. Employees who have not renewed their permit should continue to park in the Locust Garage and are encouraged to renew their permit prior to July 1 to receive a proximity badge.

Please note that validation stickers will continue to be accepted until July 1. Visitors using validation stickers should use the cashier lane upon exiting and hand their garage ticket and validation sticker to the cashier. Please do not attach the sticker to the garage ticket. Pay stations will not recognize stickers as a method of payment. Additional information regarding the new validation program will be provided at a later date. Parking Attendants will be positioned at the entrance and exit of the Forbes Garage to assist leaseholders and visitors with the new technology.

If you have any questions, please contact the Parking Office at x5267.
