Free parking for off-campus (non-affiliate) visitors is available in the Hull Street Deck. Enter at the south entrance near Baxter Street. Library visitors not affiliated with the University can bypass the pay machine on the 3rd level and proceed directly to the Special Collections Libraries lobby desk to sign in with their vehicle tag number. This will validate the vehicle in the deck for the rest of the day.
Please note that UGA faculty, staff, and students cannot utilize this validation system, and should pay the hourly rate at the pay machine in order to avoid a citation.
Parking for our visitors with disabilities is located on Level 3 of the deck as well as a pedestrian bridge connecting the parking deck to the quad in front of the Special Collections Library.
Extra visitor parking is offered at the Tate Center Parking Deck for an hourly fee. The Tate Center Parking Deck is located one block south of the intersection of Baxter Street and South Lumpkin Street. See: Parking Rates. All University of Georgia affiliates must abide by parking regulations set forth by UGA Parking Services. For more information about visitor parking, please visit the Parking Services website or call 706-542-PARK (7275).
