The closest parking areas to the Young Research Library are Parking Structure #3 and 5. The closest parking area to the Schoenberg Music Building is Parking Structure #2. There are two ways to purchase parking in the various structures:

  • Purchase pay-by-space parking in any space marked “Pay & Display.” Go to a self-service Daily Visitor Pay Station and follow posted instructions to purchase parking. The self-service station will dispense a parking pass based on your license plate number. Place the pass on your car dashboard so it is visible through the driver’s side of the windshield. Parking permits are good for only one lot (i.e., you may not move your car to another lot without paying an additional charge). For more information, please visit the Transportation website.
  • Purchase all-day parking for $12/day at the Parking Kiosk located at Westholme Avenue and Hilgard Avenue (designated by the “i” on the map above). Only cash is accepted at this kiosk. Transportation Service representatives are also present at this kiosk to answer your questions.
