Webstore, Parking for FAST3 training workshops
Where can I park for my training workshop?
No special parking is available for class participants. As is the case at all central campus locations, parking is scarce. We suggest that you walk or take public transportation whenever possible. Parking fees are the responsibility of the participant.Parking Lots
There is public metered parking (10-hour meters) in the UI Library parking lot at the SE corner of 6th and Armory Streets. Meters are $1.00 per hour, and may be paid with coins, "cashkey," or via call-in credit card (credit card instructions are mounted on meter stanchions). The Library lot is located:
½ block east of the UI Armory, and 3 blocks south and ½ block west of Illini Hall.
There is usually public metered parking (10-hour meters) available on the lower level of the UI parking garage at the corner of 6th and John Streets (entry from John Street, which at that point is one-way east-bound). Meters are $1.00 per hour, and may be paid with coins, "cashkey," or via call-in credit card (credit card instructions are mounted on meter stanchions). Metered spaces in the garage are sometimes reserved for special University events. A lighted sign above the entrance should indicate whether public parking is available on the lower level. The 6th & John University parking garage is located:
- 1 block west of Illini Hall, and
- 3 blocks north of the UI Armory
There is only one street in the area with unrestricted (10-hour) metered parking available (meters are $1.00 per hour):
- Sixth Street, but only SOUTH of Armory Avenue (starting on same block as the UI Armory)
- Nearly all other on-street metered parking in the area is “2-hour time zone limited,” which means parking on either side of the same street for more than 2 hours in any 3-hour period may result in a parking ticket (currently $15), even if the 2-hour meter is kept “fed.”
There are only a few other 10-hour meters in the area, and all of those are on the streets west of Fourth Street. Most spaces on streets west of Fourth Street are permit parking only (and the city does tow), but at one end of most blocks west of Fourth Street, the city has left two 10-hour meters available for public use.
