Month and week permits are for consecutive days and month permits are valid from one date to the same date on the proceeding month, e.g., April 9 to May 9. If you have any questions about contractor/temporary permits or need a more customized duration, feel free to contact our office for details and pricing.
Parking Fees for SLU Events and Activities
Contact University Event Services at 314-977-6338 to coordinate parking for an event, meeting or conference. If you need to arrange parking for a wedding at St. Francis Xavier College Church or a reception on campus, complete the parking form enclosed in your wedding packet and submit it to the Office of Parking, Card and Transportation Services.
For parking in either the Laclede or Olive garages during collection times of an event, SLU permit parkers can enter at the "Permit Holder Only" entrances of both garages (Olive's entrance is located in the center of the garage on Olive east of Litteken Hall, and Laclede's entrance is the lower west entrance near Spring).
The only exception to this will be during a sold-out event at Chaifetz. If this occurs, you will still be able to park in the Laclede garage, but the entrance to Olive will be closed. When this happens, notification signage will be posted outside the garage entrances the day of the event and on the Parking, Card and Transportation Services Facebook page.
If you choose to enter the garage from an entrance other than the “Permit Holder Only” entrance after event collection starts, you will be required to pay the event parking rate.
Ending Your SLU Parking Plan
If you need to withdraw your request for a parking permit, remember that no refunds are given after the first two weeks of the semester.
All deductions are ongoing until our department has received written/typed withdrawal confirmation from the permit holder. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to withdraw from deductions in a timely manner. Most deductions will be terminated at the beginning of the next full pay period. Deductions will continue in the current pay period during which the withdrawal is submitted.
Payroll deductions for parking are discontinued the next full pay period following the date you cancel your permit. Since Metro monthly pass deductions are equal deductions calculated based on a year's worth of passes, i.e., 12 passes over 26 pay periods, early termination may result in deductions continuing beyond the next full pay period to cover the outstanding balance of the passes obtained.
Cancel your deductions before the first of the month to ensure that a deduction will not be made from that month's paycheck (e.g. canceling before April 30 to stop May's deduction). Withdrawals processed after the first of the month will be charged the full month's deduction. Fees are not prorated upon withdrawal.
