Parking

Faculty members are provided with parking passes.  If you taught at UMSL last year, your parking pass will expire at the end of October.  Please register your car(s) online here.  You will receive a temporary pass until the new passes are available.  Parking is available in lot JJ (nearest to our building), along Laclede Lane (as posted), and in Parking Garage KK (near the College of Nursing).  Additional parking is available in Lot XX (north of the Villa Building) and Lots WW and VV (in front of Marillac Hall near the Metro-link station).  Parking does “settle down” after the first few weeks of the semester.  Please contact Audri for Handicap Parking options.  If you drive an unregistered vehicle to campus, you can print a one-day temporary parking pass using the same link.
