Free parking is provided across Washington Ave. from COCA in a new parking garage shared with Washington University.
The new parking garage includes 200+ total spaces serving three groups: COCA, Washington University’s 560 Music School, and the University’s Castlereigh Apartments – the same three groups that had been sharing the two smaller surface lots.
With additional spaces overall, we will continue to manage the new garage much as we managed the two lots – spaces will be divided between us and available on a first-come basis.
During special events, COCA will continue to offer valet services, shuttle services, and collaborate with other nearby parking lot owners. COCA staff and 560 Music School staff will also continue to share event calendars to make the best plans to accommodate our patrons.
CONTROL ARM AT GARAGE ENTRY
The parking garage entrance arms work on a sensor to keep a count of the cars in the garage – and will advise drivers if the lot is FULL. COCA visitors and students do NOT need to pull a ticket and will NOT be charged to exit!
There is accessible parking on all floors of the garage near the elevator. There are also two accessible parking spaces on the corner of Washington Ave. near Trinity Ave.
DROP-OFF/PICK-UP AREA ON WASHINGTON AVE.
Please do not park and leave your car in the small area designated by cones in order to keep it free for quick drop-offs/pick-ups.
NO PARKING ALONG TRINITY AVE.
To help with neighborhood traffic flow, please do not park in front of the COCA entrance on Trinity Ave.
Limited street parking is available. As always, we ask that you please respect our neighbors and follow all University City parking rules.
