  • Park in the University Center Parking Garage and pay the posted rate. The entrance is located just past Baker Center on Oxbow Drive.
  • Park in the City Parking Garage and pay the posted rate. It is at the corner of University Terrace and W. Washington St. in uptown Athens which is five blocks from the 4th floor entrance to the University Center.
