Visitor Parking

Visitors are classified as those not currently affiliated with Saint Louis University. Affiliated members of the University include current faculty, staff, and students. Hickory East, Laclede visitor section, and Olive visitor section are open to anyone who does not have a valid SLU parking permit.

Admission Visits

If you are on campus for a tour through the Office of Admission 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. Once your visit registration is submitted, you’ll receive an email with more information. For questions on where to park during admission visits, contact a visit assistant at visitSLU@slu.edu, 314-977-2500 or 800-758-3678.

Clinic Appointments

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, generally denoted by blue pillars with the word "visitor" in white print, is available in designated garages. Currently, rates for visitor parking are $1 per hour or $5 per day per exit within a 24-hour period, with the exception of events at Chaifetz Arena.*

Payment

During Chaifetz events, day-pass coupons, hour coupons, 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.  

For all other visitor parking, keep the following in mind:

  •  If you plan to pay with cash, please use the walk-up machines located in the garage prior to returning to your car to exit. Cash, credit cards or debit cards can be used at the walk-up machines, but the machines at each visitor exit in the garages only accept credit/debit cards.
  • Some University departments may validate garage parking with a coupon under certain circumstances. Coupons are also available for purchase. Coupons must be used at the exit lane when leaving the garage; the walk-up machines do not accept coupons. Information on purchasing coupons can be found below. 
  • A $25 fee is issued for lost parking tickets.

  • You do not pay for your Parkmobile space.
  • You pay for the wrong Parkmobile zone.
  • You register the wrong license plate on Parkmobile.

Overnight Visitor Parking

Due to automated systems at the Hickory East, Laclede and Olive garages, visitors can park overnight without purchasing a permit prior to parking. Visitors simply take a ticket upon entrance and then pay the machine upon exit. Those staying on campus longer than a 24-hour period or weekend may be required to purchase a parking permit. For any questions, please contact the Office of Parking, Card and Transportation Services prior to your visit.

Coupons 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 $5 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, Card and Transportation Services  for $1 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 $1 coupons, up to three can be used to cover parking completely for one day. Only one $2 sticker can be applied to any given ticket or transaction.
