Simple rules to be a happy Eckstein Hall parking structure user:
Eckstein Hall parking structure policy serves two purposes: (a) to facilitate the parking of members of the public participating in certain Law School activities. Spaces will be set aside on a daily basis according to the number and type of Law School events; and (b) parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis to Law School students and employees who have paid for University parking. Violation of rules can result in a fine or loss of parking privileges for an entire year.
Students, Faculty, and Staff must purchase a parking permit from Parking Services to have Eckstein Hall parking privileges.
Eckstein Hall parking levels fill quickly. Students should arrive on campus with the expectation that they will park in their assigned lot on campus and walk to Eckstein Hall. This guarantees a timely arrival for classes.
Church of the Gesu surface parking lot J is NOT a Marquette Law School parking lot. Students who park there at any time (day or night), will be ticketed and possibly lose their Eckstein Hall parking privileges.
Eckstein Hall parking opens 30-minutes before the building opens and closes 30-minutes before the building closes (meaning no one can enter parking 30-minutes before the building closes)—however, those who are parked when parking closes have 15-minutes after the building closes to exit the parking structure
When entering the Eckstein Hall parking garage, permit parkers should not pull a ticket unless they intend to pay for visitor parking. In the event of parking equipment malfunction (gate not opening, inaccurate space availability appearing on signage, MUID card rejected, etc.), the permit parker will proceed to his or her assigned lot to park. If unable to back up due to other cars in line, the permit parker should safely exit his or her vehicle and ask the other parkers to back up. (Please be a courteous driver and back up when asked or if you see someone blocked) If that is not possible, the permit parker should use the intercom for assistance. When using the intercom, any permit parker who ignores the directive/instructions given by the Welcome Desk staff will be subject to fines and revocation of Eckstein Hall parking privileges. Student permit parkers are governed by Section 902 of the Law School Academic Regulations in their behavior toward other students, faculty members, staff, and University Public Safety officers.
Students having parking issues need to email Parking Services with their name, MUID number, and the type of permit they purchased for the semester, or they can report the issue to office 244B.
Students who have a University parking permit and handicap parking license or permit should alert the Building Supervisor to receive special parking instructions.
