Please note that UGA faculty, staff, and students cannot utilize this validation system, and should pay the hourly rate at the pay machine in order to avoid a citation.
Parking for our visitors with disabilities is located on Level 3 of the deck as well as a pedestrian bridge connecting the parking deck to the quad in front of the Special Collections Library.
Extra visitor parking is offered at the Tate Center Parking Deck for an hourly fee.
