Parking at HSC
Please be aware that a significant number of complaints have been made from the neighborhoods surrounding the UGA Health Sciences Campus (HSC) about vehicles parking on neighborhood streets. As a result, police are monitoring the area and anyone parked illegally may be ticketed.
We encourage everyone to be a good neighbor to those who live around our campus. One way to do that is to take advantage of the HSC's visitor lot parking (at $1/hr.) or permit parking ($20/mo.) available to students, faculty, and staff via UGA Parking Services. It is our desire to ensure that public health students are not contributing to the ongoing problem.
