Effective July 1, 2017 – Changes to DUC Garage
Olin Library is in the center of the Danforth Campus.
Visitors can park in the Danforth underground garage, the Snow Way and Millbrook garages. All visitor spaces are indicated on the campus parking map. The Danforth University Center (DUC) Garage is located at 6475 Forsyth Ave., St. Louis, MO 63130. The first level of the DUC Garage and the ramp leading to the second level is designated Visitor/Admissions Parking Only.
Visitor parking in these locations uses gate-arm technology. Non-permit holders are encouraged to park in the Danforth University Center (DUC), Millbrook, Snow Way and West Campus garages. These individuals will need to pull a ticket at the entrance to gain access, park in a designated visitor space, and pay prior to exiting the garage. Specific instructions for visitors parking in each of the four garages is outlined on the WU Parking and Transportation page. Charges will be incurred by the hour.
Passport Parking App

At this time, there is no parking at the east end of campus due to construction. All visitor parking is now consolidated to the Danforth, Snow Way, Millbrook, or West Campus garages in designated visitor spaces.
Visitors who will be parking on campus during weekends (between 5 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. Monday) are permitted to park in yellow zones without displaying a parking permit. While there is no cost to park in any yellow or visitor space within the DUC, Snow Way, Millbrook or West Campus garages after 5 p.m., visitors will still be required to pull a ticket to gain access.
Daily permits are no longer available for purchase and are no longer valid. The parking meters near the DUC and along Forsyth have been removed and replaced with permit parking in those areas.
