Important Information

  • Permit parking in parking garages are located on the upper levels past the second entrance gate.
  • An access card must be purchased for an initial $10 fee and used each time a customer enters/exits the garage, even if the gates are up. Customers are required to use the access card at two entrance gates and two exit gates. Any deviation from this sequence will result in an out-of-sequence error, causing the access card to not work.
  • Customers are responsible for damaged, lost or stolen access cards/permits. A new card costs $10 and a new paper permits cost $25.
  • The City of East Lansing is not responsible for any vehicle damage or theft while on City property. It is advised that you keep valuables out of sight and vehicles securely locked.
