On weekends, parking at many locations is free, including parking garages. However, there are important exceptions that are well-identified as reserved parking spaces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Below is payment information for those who use the Grant Street parking garage on weekdays. Be aware that the garage also has parking spaces that are reserved for other vehicles at all times.

Payment must be made before returning to your vehicle at a machine in the garage lobby (southwest corner of garage across from the Purdue Memorial Union Hotel entrance). (You do not need to pay or stop at the machine for weekend parking.) Driving directions to the Grant Street Garage.
