Requirements to Park

In order to park in the McDonough Hall garage, all students need to register their vehicle to receive a current 2023-2024 parking hang tag.

  • Students may register their vehicle and receive their hang tag during Orientation and Registration in the Parking Office.
  • New parkers may register their vehicle information at any time during the year with the vehicle year, model, make, color, license plate number and state registered in the Parking Office.

Parking Space Availability
