Parking Information for University Hospital
When visiting the University Hospital, you can park at the Ashley-Rutledge Garage (6'8" clearance) which has entrances on both Ashley Avenue and Rutledge Avenue. Self-parking for outpatients is $.75 per half hour, up to a maximum of $3. If parking exceeds two hours, all charges over $3 will be paid by the hospital; but to receive this courtesy the ticket must be validated. Check with reception staff in the area where you receive your care.
Mobility-Impaired Patients/Handicapped Parking for University Hospital
Handicap parking is also available at the Rutledge Tower Surface Lot. For wheelchair assistance, use a courtesy phone near an elevator or call 843-876-0101 (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday) from your cell phone. South Carolina State law provides that there is no charge for parking in metered or timed facilities for vehicles which display a handicap plate or placard and which are driven by or transporting the handicapped individual. If the handicapped individual is not in the vehicle, the posted parking rate applies.
Valet parking is available for a fee of $8 at the main entrance of the Rutledge Tower and the Clinical Sciences Building (attached to University Hospital) for patients and families/visitors of patients. Drive your vehicle to the main entrance of any of these buildings for valet service, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., as available.
The MUSC Health Patient Shuttle system provides a free and convenient way for patients to travel between buildings on our downtown campus.
Inpatients' families and visitors may park for $.75 per half hour. The maximum daily rate (up to 24 hours) is $6. To receive the reduced rate, the visitor should provide the patient's last name and room number to the cashier when exiting the parking facility. The cashier will issue a receipt. This will allow unlimited additional exits during the 24-hour period at no charge.
