You have several options when your parking need is mainly in the evening hours in Chicago. If you expect to be attending classes less than twice per week, you may self-validate your parking ticket for a discounted rate that is currently $7.50 per evening. This rate applies to Saturday parking as well. This is valid in either of two University garages: the 222 E. Huron Self-Park designated as "Lot A", or the 321 E. Erie parking structure, designated as "Lot C & D". One can park in either lot from 4:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
Other Parking Options:
There are several public parking garages in the area, as well as metered street parking. Detailed parking maps and information can be found using the following online directories:
