Medical Center Employee Parking
Medical Center faculty and staff who wish to park on campus must register their vehicles with the Department of Transportation and Parking through the Parking Management Center and purchase a permit (employees must pay for their own permit). Parking is permitted in your assigned lot, in the College Town Garage after 2:00pm, and in Lot 3 (Kendrick North) and Lot 8 (Medical School) between 5:00pm and 6:00am. Monday–Friday, in the Hospital Garage after 6:00 pm Monday-Friday, and during weekends and University holidays. Updated guidelines can be found here.
Permits are not valid for parking at the Wilmot Cancer Center, Flaum Eye Institute, Patient Discharge, Kinder Care, Emergency Department, Strong Behavioral Health, or Musculoskeletal lots at any time. If you are visiting as a patient, please call the Parking Management Center at (585) 275-4524 before you arrive to be added to our exceptions list for that time.
Medical Center Employee Drop Off
We have three designated spots for employee drop off: the School of Medicine and Dentistry, Whipple Circle and the lower Golisano Children’s Hospital Loop.
Please refrain from being dropped at or picked up in the Main or Patient Discharge loops or East Drive, as it poses serious safety hazards.
Prior to your start date or immediately after orientation, please visit the Parking Management Center at 70 Goler House to apply for your permit. When you visit the Parking Management Center, please bring the following items with you to register:
- Vehicle Plate #
- Make and Model of Vehicle
- ID Badge
