Parking Reminder and FAQs
May 29, 2013

Student pre-registration for downtown parking starts today, May 29. This can be done online by going to through June 30. If you are having issues with the system, please email Parking and Card Services with your parking preference, Banner ID, license plate number/state, vehicle year, make, model, body type and color. Faculty and staff are asked to pre-register in person at Parking and Card Services or via email through this Friday, May 31. More details can be found in our previous parking update.

Due to the high volume of requests, Parking and Card Services will not reply with a confirmation email. If you email and do not receive any automated notification that it is undeliverable, it has been received.

We realize parking is a major concern and many of you have questions regarding the parking policies. We have collected your questions and have shared the answers below. If you have any further questions please email

When it says reciprocal parking is available for Scott Hall permit holders, does that mean just premium parkers? 
No, anyone with a law school permit (premium or preferred) will have reciprocity at the Salus Center, Medical School, Frost Campus and Anheuser-Busch Institute. The reciprocal parking policy is the same campus wide. A map of reciprocal parking can be found on the Parking and Card Services website. 

Regarding preferred parking, is the permit specific to one location? 
Preferred parking permit holders will have access – and can park – at either preferred location. If 1215 Olive is full, you can park at the Ninth Street Garage.

What if I have Scott Building premium parking, which ends at 5:30, but will be in the building past that time (class, evening events)? 
If you are in premium parking, the spot you reserve is yours from 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m. You do not have to leave at 5:30, but if you do, the space is open for anyone to take. If you are here before 5:30 and have class until 10 p.m., you can stay in your spot. You can come and go all day and have a guaranteed spot, but if you leave after 5:30, the spot is fair game for those who have paid for evening parking inside the law school building. 

Does SLU participate in the Transit Benefit Program or provide any other type of subsidy for those of us who are interested in taking the Metrolink into work? 
The university does not provide an employer subsidy of the parking passes. However, for faculty and staff, SLU provides a service where you can have the cost of monthly metro passes deducted from your paycheck. The cost of the pass ($72/month) is deducted pre-tax. In order to participate, you must buy monthly passes (bi-weekly, daily, and other options are not available). Currently, the university receives the passes and employees pick them up at the parking office on campus. Parking and Card Services is looking into having any passes forwarded to a point person at the law school or visiting the law school monthly for distribution.

Will 3Ls have priority in registering for parking spaces inside the law building? 
No, this will be done through a lottery. 

Where will the handicapped parking be located? How will this be managed?
There are six handicap accessible spots located in Scott Hall. These will be available to any individuals holding a University approved handicapped parking pass for any of law school parking options. They will be available on a first come first serve basis unless reserved by the individual through premium or 24 hour reserved parking. Handicapped parking is also available at the Olive Street surface lot and Ninth Street Garage. 

Will there be spaces reserved for students inside the building?  How are they assigned?
Yes there are spaces reserved for students inside the building. Because parking inside the building is limited, these will be assigned through a random lottery done by Parking and Card Services.

What are the hours for the preferred parking?
You will be able to access the Olive Street surface lot and Ninth Street Garage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please note that your permits are only good for your designated parking. Preferred permit will not be able to park in Scott Hall in the evenings or over the weekends.

Who can park in Scott Hall?
24-hour reserved, premium and evening permit holders are the only permit holders allowed in the building at any time. 

When will I know if I got the spot I wanted?
Parking and Card Services is working diligently to get parking assigned.  You will be notified once the pre-registration is complete.

How long do I have to pre-register?
The deadline for pre-registration for Faculty and Staff is 3 p.m. on Friday, May 31. Students pre-registration will continue through June 30.
