WHAT IF I AM THE PATIENT OR THE GUEST OF A PATIENT TODAY?

An employee or student with a doctor's appointment, or who is visiting a patient, is allowed to park in patient parking during the scheduled appointment or visit only by utilizing a courtesy parking pass.
Please print and complete an official Courtesy Appointment Parking Pass.
Make sure your university parking permit is visible, and place the printed courtesy pass on the dash.
Be sure the note can be easily seen and read from outside the vehicle in order to avoid a citation.
