The garage in the Washington Center is open from 7am until 8pm weekdays during the fall and spring semesters (7am until 7pm during the summer semester). While you cannot enter the garage after 8pm, you may exit until 10:45pm. Parking is a flat rate of $6 after 5pm, otherwise, it is $8 per hour or $15 all day.

Since it is sometimes difficult to enter this garage after 5pm, it is recommended that you arrive early or park at 1616 Rhode Island Avenue (see below). Note that your car may be towed if you block another car in this garage without leaving your key with the parking attendant. You will be responsible for all fees incurred as a result of being towed.
