Detach the bottom perforated portion of the permit and present it at our Patient Services front desk for payment. Place the matching top portion of the permit in your vehicle, clearly displayed on your dashboard. A valid parking permit must be displayed in your vehicle at all times while visiting the University Eye Center.

In addition to our parking around Minor Hall, there are spaces reserved for Optometry Patients in the Maxwell parking structure by Memorial stadium. Maxwell parking structure is located at 2175 Gayley Road in Berkeley, adjacent to Memorial Stadium (at the corner of Gayley and Stadium Rim Way.) Upon entry to the Maxwell Garage, collect the white entry card and park in one of our reserved spaces, located on the ground floor, in the NE corner.
Present your white entry card at check-out to purchase a validation ticket. Validation tickets are good for up to 3 hours of parking and cost $2. Parking rates without validation start at $3.00 per hour. When returning to your vehicle, find a parking payment kiosk and insert the white entry card first. Once your card has been read and accepted, insert the validation ticket. Parking under 3 hours will require no additional cost. Use your validated card to exit the garage.
