Parking for the Downtown Library is available in the Mountainlair parking garage, as well as in several city parking lots found around the Downtown Campus. 

The top level of the Mountainlair parking garage is free on weekends. However, there is no free overnight parking in the Mountainlair, and parking in Area 9 (the lower level Mountainlair parking garage) is never available without a permit.


Drop off and pick up areas are located in the alley behind the Downtown Campus Library and on Willey Street in front of White Hall, and entrance and exit ramps make the library accessible from both Prospect Street and University Avenue. Patrons needing to use the drop off area in the alley behind the Library are asked to call ahead.
