Parking Tips


When visiting McKinley Health Center keep in mind that parking your car can have its challenges. Although there are many metered spaces, they sometimes fill up.

Here's a few tips:

  • If possible, take the bus. The 21 Raven or 21 Quad will let you off at the corner of Gregory and Dorner Drive - just a short walk NW of McKinley. The Red or 22 Illini will drop you off in front of McKinley on Lincoln. Check the CUMTD Website for times and stop locations.
  • Schedule your appointment for the morning - there's often more available parking places than in the afternoon.
  • If McKinley's metered parking is full, look for spaces on Dorner Drive just 1 block West of McKinley - a short walk.
  • Metered spaces are available and designated with the orange Block I. They can be paid with using the following apps: MobileMeter, ParkMobile, or PayByPhone.
  • Avoid spaces that have signs listed as "reserved" or "rental."
  • Do not forget to increase your session stay if visit exceeds your entered time. McKinley cannot void parking tickets. For more parking rules and regulations on the University campus, see the Campus Parking web page.
  • Allow extra time to find a place to park or to get to McKinley.  You don't want to be late for your appointment!
