Highland Garage Parking (as of 08/01/2021)

All courses will begin on time, and we recommend that you arrive 15 minutes early to find your place in the classroom.

The Highland Garage is the best option for visitor parking near the Poetry Center. The garage is located directly to the northwest of the Poetry Center (1420 E Helen St, Tucson, AZ 85719) and may be entered from the south side of the structure at Helen St and Vine Ave. The Highland Garage costs $2.00 per hour from 5AM – 5PM (with a maximum charge of $8.00 per day). Currently evening parking in the surface lots surrounding the Poetry Center is free after 5PM.

Gateless Parking Garage and Passport Parking App

As of the Fall 2021 semester, the UA Parking Department has changed the payment process for UA Garages.

Visitors to campus (such as HSP students) must now pay via an app on your smartphone called the Passport Parking App.
It is highly reccomended that you download, create an account, and sign into the Passport Parking App before arriving to campus in order to reduce unnecessary stress.
For more information please visit the University of Arizona’s Passport Parking page.

Summer and Evening Parking on the UA Campus

During the summer months (May through August) and every evening, plenty of Visitor Parking will be available in the Highland Garage. Regular visitor parking rates apply. (Day Rate: $2.00 per hour, max $8.00 per day. Evening Rate After 5 pm: $1.00 per hour, max $4.00 per day).

Off Campus Locations (Oro Valley and East Tucson)

Parking at our off campus locations, such as in Oro Valley and at Hacienda at the Canyon on the East side of Tucson, is free and close to the classroom. All students enrolled in HSP courses held off campus receive detailed directions and parking information specific to each location.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at 520-621-2492 or if you have any questions about these parking options.

We look forward to seeing you in class!
