Vehicles under seven feet high can park in the Campus Center Parking Garage for $5.00 for the day.  We will give you a pass at registration to get this reduced rate.
Note:  If you are driving an official state vehicle or a vehicle with PUPIL license plates, you can park FREE in any lot on campus, or for $5.00 in the Campus Parking Garage.
Also Note:  If your vehicle is over seven feet high you will need to park at the north end of Lot 25, near the tree line and the Parking Services office.  This is about a ten minute walk from the Campus Center.  Please call ahead (Brita Dempsey 413/532-0372) to let us know that you will need this. You can still do pickup/drop-off just before the entrance to the parking garage.
