Parking Services welcomes you to Georgia Regents University. Our staff is available to assist you with your parking needs and any questions you may have. The Parking and Badging Office is located on 15th Street outside of the 15th Street Parking Deck. Office hours are Monday thru Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All employees are required to follow the guidelines of the Parking Services. Rules and Regulations are as follows:
- Each GR Health employee is required to register all vehicles that the employee will drive during work hours. Registration of the vehicles shall include make, model, color and license tag information.
- Any employee vehicle must be registered prior to parking in an MCGHealth Parking Area for work related parking. Failure to register your vehicle prior to parking during your work/shift time will result in a $50 fine.
- Each employee will be assigned to a specific employee parking area and issued an Employee Parking Hang Tag. The Hang Tag must be displayed at all times - from the rearview mirror. Employees are required to park in their assigned parking area Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. This includes but is not limited to any work related parking such as regular work shifts, work meetings, work appointments, etc.
- After 2 p.m. - 7:30 a.m., Monday - Friday and anytime Saturday and Sunday, employees can park in any MCGHealth parking Area. Please note, any evening/night shift employee who will be working past 7:30 a.m. must be parked in their regularly assigned employee parking area after 7:30 a.m.

In the event an employee receives a citation for a violation, the employee is responsible for contacting the Parking Office within 14 days from the date of the citation. The employee must contact the Parking Office in person. No telephone calls are accepted. After the 14 day period the fine is doubled and forwarded to Human Resources for payroll deduction.
- Payment for fines can be made by check, money order or payroll deduction.
- The employee has the right to appeal any citation by completing the Parking Citation Appeal Process within 14 days from the date of the citation. After this period, the right to appeal expires and all violation charges and/or expenses incurred become automatically due and payable.
