G lot patient parking to close starting July 20

As of July 20, the G lot parking area will close due to the construction of two new facilities, the Drug Discovery and Biomedical Research buildings. All patient and visitor parking will be redirected to the Jonathan Lucas Street (360 spaces) and Ashley-Rutledge (625 spaces) patient parking garages. This closure follows the campus’ master plan for a pedestrian-friendly campus with employee and student parking on the periphery while preserving parking for patients in the areas closest to their destinations.
The Office of Parking Management (OPM) is working closely with hospital leadership throughout this transition period to help communicate these changes. Notices, created in both English and Spanish, about the G lot closure are being distributed to customers as they exit G lot and from areas where they receive their care.
“It’s important for all units and departments who regularly communicate with their patients and visitors to reflect this change accurately within their literature and communications so that the information is correct and consistent,” said Melinda Anderson, OPM director.
Additionally, the student after-hours study parking program will move from G lot to the President Street garage. Other changes in parking locations and programs may be necessary in order to accommodate patients.
For employees, OPM has space available for MUSC employees at its parking garages and facilities throughout campus for those interested in entering MUSC’s employee parking system. Call 792-3665 or visit
