  • One month pass—$275
  • 30-day H-pass—$397.50
    • The H-pass will only grant the pass holder entry into the public parking areas located off McCaul and Murray Streets as monthly card holder parking areas do not have the card readers for the H-passes.
    • The H-pass is valid for one year upon date of purchase.

Access the form here to purchase a monthly pass. For H-passes, please visit the Parking Office located on Murray Street.
