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 admissions as a prospective undergraduate student, you can obtain a permit to park at the New Student Visit Center at Queen's Daughters Hall, 3730 Lindell Blvd.

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, but can only be used at visitor garages with cashiers, i.e. the Hickory East and Laclede garages. The Olive garage is fully automated and cannot process hour coupons. If the coupon does not fully cover your time in the garage, the difference must be paid to the cashier upon exit.

Garage Rate: $2 per hour, $6 per day and $25 maximum per day. Fees of $25 are issued for losing your parking ticket, parking without a valid parking permit after visitor hours in the Laclede garage or parking overnight in the Laclede garage with a valid parking permit.

Short-term Visitor Parking

North Campus

Brouster Hall: 3824 Lindell Blvd.

Student, faculty and staff parking are not permitted in the Brouster Hall visitor parking areas, and each visitor must obtain a one-day hangtag from the desk worker to display in their vehicle to use these spaces.  Parking and Card Services also offers some street parking along Laclede Ave. that can be paid for with the Parkmobile app. 

Ticketing may occur if:

  • The one-day hangtag is not displayed
  • The one-day hangtag is expired
  • Information on the one-day hangtag is altered
  • There is no information written on the hangtag
  • Faculty, staff or students park in these visitor spaces, even if a visitor hangtag was obtained and displayed
  • In the event that these two visitor locations are full, parking in the Laclede Garage is available in the visitor parking areas only.

South Campus

Salus Lot: 3358 Lafayette Ave. 

Visitors using the Salus Lot must have a token to exit. Prior to entering the lot, make certain that you either have a token already or will be able to obtain one from the department you are visiting in the Salus Center.

Tokens can be purchased from the parking and card services office in DuBourg Hall, Room 33, for $6 each. Call 314-977-2957 or email parking@slu.edu for more information.

Overnight Visitor Parking

Only Olive and Hickory East Garages have overnight parking for visitors without purchasing a permit for display. Guests staying on campus longer than a 24-hour period must park in the non-reserved sections at a cost of $6 per day.
