What hours during the day can I park with a monthly/semester parking pass?
Regular garage access will be from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm, Monday – Friday. For customers
who have purchased weekend access, garage access will also be available on Saturdays and Sundays. Neither
access option grants entry into the garage while the garage is in event mode.
Event Mode is when customers entering the garage are charged a flat rate to park, regardless of how long they intend to stay in the garage or whether they are there to attend the event. Monthly/Semester access cards will not work during event mode and persons seeking to park during this time may have to pay the event parking rate. However, accommodations will be made for monthly patrons if event parking begins during normal working hours, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday.
University of South Carolina students parking in 519 Main Street garage who live in Green Quad, South Quad and Honors Resident housing will be granted 24/7 garage access at no additional charge. Proof of residency is required.
Can I park at any Innovista Parking facility with a monthly/semester parking pass?
No, your parking pass only provides access to the garage you selected.
If I pre-pay for event parking, am I guaranteed a parking space?
Yes, you will be guaranteed a parking space in the garage. We do not reserve individual assigned parking spaces, but our prepay option is great for event parking for select events at the Koger Center and Colonial Life Arena.

If I pay monthly or by semester, will I be assigned a parking spot?
No, you will be able to park in any available parking spaces that are not marked reserved.
Can my business or organization provide parking validation for visitors?
