Visitor Parking

Visitors are classified as anyone who does not have a valid SLU parking permit.

If you are on campus for a tour through the Office of Admissions as a prospective undergraduate student, you can obtain a permit that allows you to park in the "Future Billiken" spaces on the Queen's Daughters lot, located at 3730 Lindell Blvd.

If you have an appointment with one of the clinics at McGannon Hall, you can obtain a temporary tag from the receptionist upon arrival and display it in your vehicle's windshield or rear view mirror. This tag allows you to park in one of the clinic spaces on the Queen's Daughters lot.

Visitor parking is available in three designated garages for $2 per hour or $6 for the day, with the exception of events at Chaifetz Arena. During Chaifetz events, day-pass coupons, hour coupons, tokens and other complimentary vouchers are not accepted in lieu of or toward payment of the event parking price. Only cash will be accepted for event parking.

Coupons and Tokens for Parking

Day-Pass Coupons

Non-permit holding faculty, staff, students and visitors can buy day-pass coupons in the Parking and Card Services office during regular business hours. The day-pass coupons are $6 apiece and can be used at any of the visitor garages on campus. Consider this option if you are carpooling or routinely take public transportation but need to occasionally drive to campus.

Hour Coupons

Hour coupons can be purchased from the Office of Parking and Card Services  for $2 per coupon. If the coupon does not fully cover your time in the garage, the difference must be paid to the machine upon exit. If you have multiple $2 coupons, up to three can be used to cover parking completely for one day. Only one $2 sticker can be applied to any give ticket or transaction.

Garage Rate: $2 per hour, $6 per day and $25 maximum per day. Fees of $25 are issued for losing your parking ticket. The visitor areas are denoted by blue pilars with "visitor" in white for the Olive and Laclede garages. All coupons must be used at the exit lane when exiting. The pay-on-foot machines do not accept coupons. Cash, credit cards and debit cards can be used at the pay-on-foot machines, but the machines at each visitor exit only accept credit/debit cards. If you plan to pay with cash, please use the pay-on-foot machine prior to returning to your car to exit the garage.
