Parking

The Visitor Parking Lot is located on Brook Street behind Minden Hall (corners of Waterman and Brook Streets).  The lot has 55 spaces.  The lot, which is attended, is reserved for those who have business at the University, including anyone with a Brown ID.  Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm when the University is open for business. 

This lot is for the use of Admissions visitors, vendors, departmental visitors..  In order to discourage those who are not on University business from using the lot, the lot will charge two sets of rates:  a schedule of discounted rates for those with validated tickets, and market rates (i.e. downtown rates) for those whose tickets are not validated.

Visitor Parking  has current information on parking rates..

IMNI will validate the ticket in order to confirm that the visitor was here on University business, but there is no cost to the department as a result of the validation, merely a discount for the visitor, who bears the cost of parking. 

Remember to get your parking ticket validated by IMNI Staff. The rate for the visitor parking lot is very high if your ticket is not validated.
