Whether you are visiting Saint Louis University for a day, living on campus, or commuting to class or work, having a convenient and safe place to park is a priority. There are more than 35 parking lots and garages on SLU’s Midtown campus, at the School of Law downtown and at Parks College’s Center for Aviation Science in Cahokia, Illinois.
If you're visiting SLU for a campus tour, medical appointment or some other event, you will need to park in certain lots with certain payment methods.
Purchasing a Parking Permit
Permits for Saint Louis University parking can be purchased year-round online via mySLU. At SLU, parking permits are virtual and are tracked by your license plate number, which you will enter online. You can also quickly update information or add multiple vehicles to an account.
To obtain a permit, go to the "Tools" tab in the mySLU portal and click on “Parking." Here you can purchase a permit, update license plate information, add vehicles, pay citations and more.
You will receive confirmation when you have successfully registered. You may park only in the garages or lots that are associated with your permit. If you have difficulty registering online email us or visit our office in Wool Center, Suite 130 during our office hours.
Please note, only one registered vehicle is allowed on SLU's campuses at a time per parking permit. Since your license plate or plates will serve as the virtual permit number, information must be kept current prior to parking.
Parking and Card Services also offers two-hour parking in 34 metered spots along Laclede Ave. and at Reinert Hall that can be paid for with the Parkmobile app or via the toll free number: 877-727-5973.
Transportation On- And Off- Campus
No matter where you are on campus or where you want to go, we have a way to help you get there.
Your SLU ID has your parking access but this card opens the door to much more. A SLU ID serves as identification for the University’s students, faculty, staff, contractors, long term visitors, and volunteers. It’s also used for dining on campus, services at Pius XII Memorial Library, Simon Recreation Center, and even shopping with Billiken Bucks and banking.
