Valet Parking Service (Cash Only)
We encourage valet parking at our four dropoff points. It is a convenient and inexpensive way to make it to your appointment on time. The cost is the same as self-parking:
- $5 for half day (up to four hours) or $10 for full day (longer than four hours)
- Free with a disabled placard
- Maternity patients receive a discounted rate of $4 flat fee upon request
Drop-offs are located at:
- Jacobs Medical Center main entrance (Thornton Pavilion): 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays
- Jacobs Medical Center west entrance: 5 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays
- Koman Family Outpatient Pavilion entrance: 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays
- Moores Cancer Center driveway: 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. weekdays
Self-parking is available in parking structures or lots for the same rate as valet parking: $5 for half-day parking (up to four hours) and $10 for full day (longer than four hours).
- Note your parking space number and pay at the pay stations using cash or credit card. You do NOT need to display your ticket on your dashboard.
- You can also pay via the Parkmobile app with your smart device.
- $10 parking allows you in-and-out privileges for 24 hours. Just park in any visitor spot when you return and display the ticket on the dashboard of your car.
