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 Garage or Olive Garage 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 level entrance, on the west end near Spring).

The only exception to this will be during a sold-out event at Chaifetz. If this occurs, you must park in the Laclede garage. The permit-holder entrance to Olive will be closed. When this happens, notification signs will be posted outside the garage entrances on the day of the event and the Parking, Card and Transportation Services Facebook page.

You must pay the event parking rate if you choose to enter the garage from an entrance other than the “Permit Holder Only” entrance after event collection starts.

Visitor and Special Event Parking

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. Fees are not prorated upon withdrawal. 


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.
