Garage Validation Stamps

Garage parking validation stamps are no longer offered for sale as of September 1, 2009. Any stamps already purchased will remain valid until redeemed. Please see one-use garage cards as the replacement program.

Each stamp is good for one full day of parking. All parking validation stamps are for use by official university visitors only. Just as a reminder there is no charge for the first 30 minutes in all of the university garages. Anyone who parks from 31 minutes (or greater), from the time listed on the garage entry ticket, until the posted garage closing time (or midnight at BRG), would need one validation stamp to cover their parking charge.

Validation stamps do not expire so stamps purchased now serve as a guard against any future hourly price increases. Validation stamps can be purchased from any garage and may be used at any garage except the Conference Center Garage. Validation stamps are non-refundable. Garage validation stamps are valid only during operational hours of the garages. If you have questions email us at

Using a validation stamped entry ticket to exit the garage

The validation stamp should be applied directly to the parking entrance ticket being careful not to cover the magnetic stripe on the ticket. The customer then presents the ticket to the garage cashier when they are ready to exit. All university garages are central pay garages. Please have your guest/visitors take their paper entry ticket to the centrally located office before they attempt to exit. There are no cashiers at the exits at any university garages.

If your guest should receive a late envelope at any of our garages, we will gladly accept their ticket and one appropriate validation stamp (per day) as payment in full. These can be dropped at the convenient drop boxes/slots located at our garage exits or mailed back to the garage in the late envelope that will be on your guest’s windshield.
