The Parking Service Office is responsible for all parking on campus, including surface parking lots, parking structures, and restricted areas such as the malls and loading zones.
If you would like to find out more, please email
or call us at (414) 288-6911 or call Public Safety at (414) 288-6800.
If you need overnight parking after hours (4:30 p.m. or later), please contact Public Safety at (414) 288-6800. Your vehicle must be registered with them, and you will be directed to available space in Lot A. You will also be responsible for stopping at the Parking Office the following day to post-pay for your temporary overnight parking.
If available space allows, permits for temporary daytime or overnight parking may be purchased at the Parking Office from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Your parking assignment, in all likelihood, will be Lot A on the southeast corner of 16th and Wells streets.
The cost for parking in the 16th Street Parking Structure
or Wells Street Parking Structure
on weekends and holidays is $3 at entry. Overnight weekend parking permits may be purchased from the parking office during normal business hours. Some lots on the east end of campus are open to accommodate Church of the Gesu functions and services, but permits are required for parking on campus property around the clock. Violators will be ticketed. Days that the university remains open when classes are canceled are not considered holidays; therefore, permits are required, and citations will be issued to violators.
Faculty/staff carpooling permits and parking facility assignments are made during the all-university assignment process. One person, serving as the primary driver, will have the permit costs payroll deducted. It is the responsibility of the carpool group to determine reimbursement of all parking fees to the primary driver. Faculty/staff carpooling participants must have matching employment statuses (e.g., full-time, 12-month, Monday to Friday hours). Students may also carpool under the same terms. One person (purchaser of permit) shall serve as primary driver. It is important to note that only one vehicle per carpooling unit may be parked on campus at any one time (except weekends and holidays).
Designated motorcycle parking areas are the 16th Street Parking Structure, 749 N. 16th St., and next to the Wells Street Parking Structure. A permit for your motorcycle, which must be displayed on the right front fork, may be purchased at the Parking Office. Please note that the entrance to the 16th Street Parking Structure should be made without using a gate card because of the sensitive nature of the gate arms. Mopeds and all other forms of motorized scooters are viewed similarly as that of a motorcycle on campus. A permit is required, and parking is restricted to the same two locations as motorcycles.
Organized special events
Departments needing parking for special events or guests should make arrangements with the Parking Services Office at least a week before the date of the event. Please be prepared to give the office information about the event and its location.
Disabled parking policies/parking for permanent medical disabilities
All faculty, staff and students who are in possession of a valid, state-issued disabled parking permit/plate will be granted priority consideration for their on-campus parking assignment. This status will only apply to those individuals who properly display their state-issued disabled parking permit/plate along with their valid Marquette parking permit.
Parking reassignment for temporary medical disabilities
Temporary parking reassignments will be considered for those individuals with a short-term, mobility-impairing medical disability. A physician's written verification of the disability will be required for all requests extending beyond five business days. Likewise, this status will only apply to those individuals who properly display their valid Marquette parking permit. Without a state-issued disabled parking permit/plate, use of a designated disabled parking space cannot be authorized. All requests for a temporary reassignment must be approved by the Parking Office before taking effect.
Disabled parking spaces
Only those vehicles properly displaying a valid, state-issued disabled parking permit/plate and a Marquette-issued permit are allowed to park in a designated disabled parking space. Citations will be promptly issued for all related violations. The cross-hatched area next to a disabled parking space is the access aisle for that same disabled space.
