Chicago Parking Customer Service Enhancements

In an effort to enhance customer service and improve the experience of individuals visiting Northwestern’s Chicago campus, the management of the Erie and Huron street parking garages will be managed by a new service provider effective April 1, 2016. This change will have no impact on rates or access to the garage and requires no action on the part of the individuals who use the facilities or the organizations and departments that rely on them for business operations. There are no anticipated service interruptions during this transition.

Northwestern Transportation and Parking is committed to enhancing the experience and improving the level of service provided at the Northwestern garages. Service and amenity enhancements planned for 2016 include:
