Parking Accommodations for New Campus Center Construction
Mar 12, 2019 | Atlanta, GA
On Monday, May 6, 2019, construction for the new Campus Center will begin.
Several parking and transit modifications will be implemented.
Unfortunately, the following parking locations will close permanently to accommodate this project:
-W03: parking lots at ISyE and behind Student Center deck
-Area 3 Visitors Lot
You are welcome to park in your current lots until Sunday, May 5 at 11:59 p.m. (PTS will send email reminders as this date approaches).
W03 Permit Customers
All W03 permit customers will be given gate access to the W02-Student Center deck and the W10 CRC parking deck. Access will be valid Saturday, May 4 through August 14, 2019. You will not need to exchange your permit hangtags; however, please make sure your W03 permit hangtag is displayed properly when parking in W02 and W10. (If you prefer to park in W21: Physics/Boggs lot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Renewals for 2019-2020 parking permits will be available April 1-10, 2019 at driverseat.gatech.edu. During this period, all current W03 customers may renew their permit for W02-Student Center deck. Permits for 2019-2020 will be valid August 15, 2019 through August 14, 2020. (If you prefer to park in a location other than W02, you may select a location during general permit sales, which begins April 24).
You are welcome to park in Visitors Area 1, W23-North Campus deck or E81-Tech Square deck using your SmartPark access/units.
To accommodate the design of the new Campus Center, the W02-Student Center deck will be converted to a mixed-use deck for both permit and visitors parking. New entrances and exits will be installed, with construction beginning Saturday, March 16. The W02 parking deck will remain open during construction of the new entrance and exit. However, several spaces will be off-line intermittently to facilitate the construction. Any spaces taken off-line will be marked and permit holders will receive email notices as the date approaches. Construction is expected to be completed in early April. Equipment installation and deck conversion should be completed by May 4.
Area 3 Visitors Validations
Unused Area 3 validations may be exchanged for a new parking location (with the exception of E81-Tech Square parking deck). Please email email@example.com for exchanges.

Complimentary bus parking spaces on Ferst Drive will be removed. Buses will be allowed to park on Hemphill Avenue starting May 6. To purchase bus parking permits, please email Michelle Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
