Download GC Parking Permit Registration Form

Garrett College provides parking for the main campus with two parking lots next to the main campus area. The Continuing Education/GIEC parking lot can be accessed from Bumble Bee or Mosser Roads (via Allen S. Paugh Sr. Road).

The main parking lot that accommodates the majority of campus buildings can only be accessed from Bumble Bee Road. The residence halls offer parking space for those living in the halls. Guest parking is on a first-come basis.

The CAOS (Center for Adventure and Outdoor Studies), residence halls, and baseball practice facilities have parking lots adjacent to each facility.

Visitors are not required to have a visitor pass to park in campus lots.

Visitors with physical disabilities have access to the designated spaces in the College's parking lots. Reserved parking spaces are identified using the familiar "handicap parking only" international symbol. For students with documentation from a physician, special temporary parking permits are available. Students with permanent disabilities should apply to the Motor Vehicle Administration in the State of Maryland for a permanent sticker.

Parking in the campus public parking lots is strongly discouraged when the college is closed due to weather. On-campus parking privileges can be restricted or revoked if in violation of college rules of conduct or state laws.
