Parking will be available in the Air Rights Garage for medical campus events. The garage is easily accessible off the Route 34 connector with a lefthand exit following signage for “Parking Garages” or the entrance located on South Frontage Rd. (GPS users: 66 York Street) Once inside the garage, follow the signs for “Air Rights Garage,” not “100 College Street” parking which is reserved for the Alexion building.

This ticket may be used both in the cashier lanes and the keycard payment lanes upon exit from the garage. Please note: street parking is limited and meters are strictly enforced.
