The new parking garage is expected to be finished late this semester, and parking operations would like to share information about the garage and how it will be managed. The garage will offer some premium reserved, pre-purchased spaces, spaces reserved for guests of admissions, and spaces available to anyone. There will be occasions when the garage is closed for campus special events. Staircases will be located at the north and south sides of the garage. There will also be an elevator. For safety, the garage will be equipped with security cameras, and mechanisms will be located at the entrance and exit for users to contact the S&T Police with any problems.  

To park in the garage on a temporary basis, the rate is $3 per hour for a maximum of 24 hours and minimum of one hour. When parked in the garage for 24 hours, the cost is $50. Vehicles parked in the garage more than 24 hours will be towed at the owner’s expense.

There will be signage at the entrance to the garage letting users know the number of general use spaces available. Patrons will take a ticket when entering the garage and use the available kiosks to pay for their parking time. They will receive a barcode after payment at the kiosk that must be scanned to exit the garage. There will be a $50 fee for lost tickets.

Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 10, faculty and staff who want to be on the list to purchase one of the limited premium reserved spaces will need to send an email to The cost for a premium space is $55 per month or $660 per year. Any current faculty or staff member who purchase a premium space in the garage will forfeit their current parking pass. This allows parking operations to award those spaces to campus community members who are on waitlists.
