ON CAMPUS PARKING
Parking spaces on the University of Maryland campus are a scarce resource. Several hotels in the area offer shuttle service to areas on campus including the Eppley Recreation center. You might consider leaving your car at your hotel and taking a shuttle or walking to the pool if you are staying in one of the on-campus hotels.
The primary parking location for coaches, spectators and volunteers is the six story Terrapin Parking Garage which is less than a five-minute walk to the pool.
The cost of parking for the Terrapin Parking Garage is $12 for the day or $40 for the week (Monday thru Friday). There is no fee for parking in the Terrapin Parking Garage on Sunday. Persons with a parking pass for this lot will be permitted to enter leave and re-enter multiple times in the same day.
PURCHASING PARKING TICKETS
The only way to park in this garage is to "PRE-PURCHASE A DAILY OR WEEKLY PARKING PASS ONLINE." The attendant will only allow a car with a pre-purchased parking permit to enter the garage. Anyone arriving at the Terrapin Parking Garage without a printed copy of their pre-purchased Parking pass will be redirected to one of several visitors lots on Campus. Note: you cannot purchase parking passes/permits at the parking garage. They must be purchase online before you get to the garage.
All of these alternative visitor lots are a further walking distance from the pool and the metered parking cost will be $3 per hour. Metered parking is obviously more expensive than the $12 all-day parking fee for the Terrapin Parking Garage
Once in the garage, you must leave your parking permit on your dashboard. Any cars found in the Terrapin Parking Garage (Monday-Friday) without a valid parking pass on their dash are liable for a $75 ticket. If the Terrapin Garage becomes full you will be redirected to the flat lot 4S north of the Terrapin Garage. You will be permitted to park in lot 4S by displaying your parking pass on your dash.
Note: if you have attended previous YMCA National Championships that were held at Eppley Rec Center, you are probably familiar with the parking lots that were behind and left to the Rec Center. These parking lots no longer exist. Although there is still a very small circled area, DO NOT DROP OFF SWIMMERS IN THIS AREA. The buses and other vehicles may not be able to navigate the small area.
