Improper Parking

Underground / South Garage Parking

Corporate Services has implemented a process for assigning parking and manages a wait list for obtaining parking for FHS faculty and staff. Parking will be allocated and assigned to the next person on the wait list as spaces become available. Extenuating circumstances (i.e.: medical issues) will be taken under review on an individual basis. You will need to provide appropriate documentation from your healthcare provider regarding your medical condition. You must be a Faculty of Health Sciences Faculty or Staff member working in the MUMC or MDCL buildings to be eligible for this lot. Campus staff and faculty will need to arrange parking with Campus Parking. (Contact details below)

To be placed on the wait list for underground or south garage parking, please complete the transponder request form and return it to Corporate Services, HSC 2E20 (Denise Healey). You can also send the request form to We will contact you once a spot becomes available. Note: There is no choice for which area you receive parking (underground or south garage). Transponders are assigned as they become available, according to application date. The wait list time is unpredictable, as we do not know from month to month how many transponders will become available.

***Please note that at this time, underground spots are generally not available due to high volume.
