All guests are encouraged to park at the Mahaffey Theater parking lot & garage. Guests pay the daily Mahaffey Theater parking fee of $10 CASH ONLY directly to the attendant on entering the parking lot. (see map)
2. Street Parking: There are a number of metered spaces around the campus and downtown area. Please feel free to use street parking. There are a few free "2 Hour" spaces in the vicinity. All metered spaces are a maximum of 3 hours.
3. Handicap Parking: The Conference will provide 20-25 handicap spaces in Lot 2 across from the University Student Center (see map). These spaces are first-come, first-serve for guests who need handicap parking, and will be marked with the Conference logo. If you park in a non-designated space, you are at risk of receiving a ticket. To avoid tickets, please park in the designated spaces with either a handicap hang tag or a handicap license plate. Anyone parked in a handicap space without a hang tag or a license plate will receive a ticket.
There are a few handicap spaces inside the USFSP garage. The same rule applies for the hang tag or plate. You must also pay a daily $5 garage parking permit fee to park inside the garage.
4. USFSP Parking Garage: PERMIT ONLY
We regret that we are not able to offer general parking for the Conference in the campus parking garage. Parking in the garage is by PERMIT ONLY and is needed by students who are attending attend class.
** Parking Tickets: If you receive a ticket from USFSP Campus Parking or from the City of St. Petersburg, you or the vehicle owner, as recipient, are responsible for paying that ticket.**
