Heated underground parking is available at the McManus Center for an additional cost. Spaces are limited and allocated on a lottery basis, with preference given to second-year students. Applications for parking are sent with contract offers. Garage spaces are available for both cars and motorcycles.

Street parking near the building is extremely limited. Students who would prefer to park in University lots instead of the McManus Center underground garage will need to purchase a parking permit from the Division of Parking and Traffic, located at 1841 Sheridan, in Evanston. Parking regulations are given to residents of Graduate Housing buildings on request. Residents must comply with all University parking regulations.
