  • The fee in the Upstate Parking Garage East is $30.00 plus New York Sales Tax (total $32.40) for a calendar week.
  • A $10.00 deposit on a proximity card is required for all visitor issues. This card will enable the parker to use the Upstate Medical University Parking Garage East 24 hours a day, for the time frame they have paid.
  • Deposit is refundable upon the return of the card.

A yellow tag will be issued in place of a permanent sticker and must be displayed on the rear view mirror facing outward, whenever the car is parked in the garage. Visitors not displaying this tag may be ticketed and/or towed.

The return of the proximity card (for refund of the deposit) may be made in person or by mail. If the return is made in person, visitors who are paid for the current month should park in the garage and arrangements will be made for their exit. If returning the proximity card by mail, a money order will be sent upon receipt of the proximity card. Those individuals should contact the Parking Office.
