Plan For Emergency Garage Closures

Know what to do in the event of an emergency garage closure before you come to campus.

During an emergency — such as winter weather, a hurricane, civil unrest, or a power outage — all 24-hour campus garages will remain open. However, non-24-hour garages will close, so parkers will need to park in garages as defined below.

24-hour garages

Open all days and times, even during emergencies, unless otherwise noted.

  • Baltimore Grand
  • Lexington
  • Plaza
  • Pratt

Non-24-hour garages

Not open during emergencies.

  • Pearl
  • Penn
  • Saratoga

Emergency garage relocation plan

  • Pearl parkers go to Baltimore Grand
  • Penn parkers go to Pratt
  • Saratoga parkers go to Baltimore Grand
