HSP Highland Garage Permit

For the most convenient and direct access to parking in the Highland garage during the Fall and Spring semesters, you may purchase a special permit directly from the UA Parking and Transportation Office. Information about how to purchase a parking permit is provided to all enrolled students after they register for a Fall or Spring semester course. The permit will allow you to park in the Highland Garage during day hours (5 AM – 5 PM) on your class dates for the duration of the course. You must purchase this permit before the beginning of the semester and will enter and exit the garage by scanning the permit at the gate machines.

  • Information about how to purchase a parking permit is provided to all enrolled students after they register for a Fall or Spring semester course. The permit is not available during the summer. Summer students should park in the Highland Garage as visitors and pay per use. See section below for more detailed information.
  • Cost: $35 for a short course (4 and 5 weeks), and $70.00 for a long course (10 weeks). If you are registered for a morning and an afternoon course on the same day, the cost of the permit for those two courses is discounted (provided all dates overlap).

Highland Garage Visitor Parking

For those who do not purchase a permit, you may continue to use Highland Garage as a visitor and pay per use. The cost of visitor parking during the day is $2.00 for each hour that you are parked in Highland Garage with a maximum charge of $8.00 per day. Please note that the garage may fill on busy days and in these cases visitors will be denied entry and only permit holders will be able to enter.
