New parking rates for Homewood, Eastern

The first parking rate increases in two years at the Johns Hopkins University Homewood and Eastern campuses go into effect on July 1, the start of the 2018 fiscal year.

The price of monthly parking permits on the two campuses will increase an average of less than 2 percent from current rates, with the exact fee depending on location and type of permit. Hourly rates for visitor parking at the South and San Martin garages at Homewood will also rise.

Homewood and Eastern monthly parkers who wish to keep their current permit after the rate increase do not need to take any action. Anyone, however, who wishes to change parking location, cancel a monthly permit, or join the monthly parking program should contact the Transportation Services office in the South Garage, send an email message to, or call 410-516-7275 (6-PARK).

All parking areas except the South Surface Lots have open spaces, and anyone waiting for a chance to choose a more convenient parking option should act now.

Parking fees are collected in advance from employees and from graduate students signed up for payroll deduction. Fees for the first half of July will be deducted at the new rates from June 30 pay deposits. Requests for July 1 parking permit changes must be made by Monday, June 19, to allow for payroll processing.

The new monthly rates are:

Homewood campus: Parking Garages: General parking, $105. Reserved spaces, $145. Surface Lots: South and North lots, $66. Peripheral lots, including School of Education, $66. Other: Departmental reserved lots, $96. Faculty hangtag, $105. Accessible parking, $66. Evening-only hangtag: $10 through end of fiscal year.

Johns Hopkins at Eastern: Upper lot, $53. Upper lot reserved, $76. Accessible parking, $66.

New hourly parking rates for visitors are available online.

Rates for department-paid parking vouchers will also increase July 1. Transportation Services will exchange already purchased but unused vouchers beginning July 5.

The Homewood/Eastern parking system is self-supporting. Parking fees cover construction debt repayment, maintenance, cleaning, labor costs and other expenses.
