Message for Parking

Students who are taking a class at The Ware Center who have a valid Millersville Universtiy campus parking permit may park free of charge during class time in the Prince Street Parking Garage (downtown Lancaster).  Those students will be issued a parking garage voucher after each class, by the university police on duty at The Ware Center.

Students who do not have a campus parking permit may find available on-street parking (free after 6 p.m. weekdays), or pay to park in any of the nearby public parking garages (Prince Street Garage or Hager Parking Lots). 

Another option for students who don't have a need for an on-campus parking permit would be to purchase an 'overflow' MU parking permit, offered at a reduced cost from university police.  A valid overflow parking permit would qualify the student to receive a Prince Street parking garagae voucher after class, just like students who have a commuter or resident campus parking permit.

Additional details about the process to purchase a permit and the cost is available using the link below to the Millersville University Parking Division. Specific questions about parking permits should be directed to the University Parking Office (717-871-5964).
