Changes in Visitor Parking at Harborview Office Tower
Effective Monday, October 3, visitor parking at Harborview Office Towers will be significantly limited. This limitation is the result of the start of construction of Phase I of the West Edge development. MUSC has agreed to work with the neighboring Holiday Inn to replace some of the hotel’s guest parking which it is losing temporarily to the project. We will be sharing the parking apron around Harborview Tower with Holiday Inn guests.
Parking Management is renovating the former Arby’s restaurant site as replacement for Harborview Tower visitor parking. Due to permitting and weather delays, it will not be ready until mid-to-late October. During this period and until further notice, visitor parking for personal vehicles at Harborview Tower will not be available at times, and when it is available it will be for a maximum of 30 minutes.
Employees attending training classes and attending meetings in Harborview Tower should use University Transportation between Main Campus and Harborview Tower. For assistance with very special needs that cannot be met by the MUSC shuttle system, please call the Parking Management guest and special event parking co-ordinator, Angie Brown, 843-792-8245.
Thank you for your understanding and support.

The purchase of day passes at the entrance to the President Street garage is causing entry delays for you and for the other users of the parking garage and is creating traffic backups on President Street during peak morning arrival times. Day-pass services require an entry transaction and cannot be handled elsewhere. You can help us speed up your and everyone’s entry if you will do the following:
- Pay in cash. Credit card is convenient, but the new CHP cards have added significantly to the time it takes to process a transaction.
- Bring the right denomination, $5, so that change doesn’t have to be made.
- Purchase day passes in advance. Stop by the parking office one day on your way back to your vehicle, purchase up to five passes a month and have a few day passes on hand when you need them.
A purchase with cash at the garage entrance will shave off three-fourths of the time it takes for a credit card transaction. Transaction time at the garage entrance with a pre-purchased pass is reduced to a few seconds--just long enough to date stamp the day pass.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
