PLEASE NOTE: When departing the UConn parking garage, the wooden arm (gate) will go up automatically upon close approach; you will then exit the campus onto North Elm Street.

Scovill Street Parking Garage: The Scovill Street parking garage, is located on the south side of the Palace Theater, and UConn OLLIs can park on levels 5 & 6 any day of the week by showing your parking pass (issued by UConn Parking Services). There is a pathway to East Main Street where the UConn Campus is located (99 East Main Street). This garage is not owned or operated by UConn.

Handicapped Parking: Handicapped parking and handicapped accessible entrances are available from ALL levels (there is an elevator) of both, the UConn and Scovill Street Parking Garages.

ALTERNATIVE PARKING

Street-Level Parking Lot: An outdoor street-level parking lot is located between the campus building and the Moriarty Building on 141 East Main Street (across from the Palace Theater). You may park here all day for a very reasonable price. This lot, named “State Parking,” is not owned or operated by UConn.

PARKING RULES AND REGULATIONS

All OLLI members must have a parking decal clearly displayed in order to park in the UConn campus parking garage.

Please note that OLLI and the Waterbury Campus do not administer or replace parking decals for UConn/Campus-related parking. Semester parking decals can be purchased directly from University Parking Services, Storrs, CT.

OLLI hang tag parking permits will be available to OLLI at UConn members  for the 2016/17 academic year at the following discounted rates:

  • Fall 2016: $19.57 (tax included)
  • Winter 2017: $8.13 (tax included)
  • Spring 2017: $19.57 (tax included)
  • Summer 2017: $0.00 (but permit still required) (tax included)
  • Academic Year (August 2016 – August 2017): $48.80 (tax included)

If you plan to use UConn Parking, you must have a current parking decal (with an expiration date that covers the semester for which you are registering). Parking Services will generally contact you directly (based on registration lists), prior to the first day of classes, to obtain relevant vehicle information. If you do not choose to use UConn parking, you can use other private or municipal parking options. Carpooling is another way to reduce traveling and parking expenses.

PLEASE NOTE: Parking Services personnel conduct routine parking enforcement in the campus parking garage and OLLI members will be ticketed for parking violations.

  • These violations include, but are not limited to: failure to display a University of Connecticut parking decal, OLLI members parking in the faculty/staff (level one) parking area, and parking in an unauthorized area (fire lanes, handicap & reserved spaces).
