Visitor parking will be provided for off-campus guests at the Central Campus Garage, located underneath McNair Hall, the business school (building #57 on the campus map). When you arrive at the garage, you will use your own credit or debit card to enter. From this garage, it is approximately a quarter-mile walk to Fondren Library, or you may take the Greater Loop or Inner Loop shuttle buses around to the Fondren Library stop. You will be given a parking validation card. To exit the garage, please insert it into the machine first as you are leaving. The machine will keep the validation card. Then insert the same credit card you used to enter. The gate will open and your card will not be charged.
