HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A new 400-space parking garage on Marshall’s campus will be ready for students and staff when classes start on Monday.
The $7 million, six-story structure is located on 6th Avenue next to the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center.
The garage has 411 spaces and two elevators. It will cost 50 cents an hour for employees, students and guests. Employees also have the choice of paying a flat fee of $40 a month.
The facility also has 50 cameras and 12 emergency phones
“This new parking facility will help commuter students and guests on campus,” said Jim Terry, Marshall’s director of public safety. “We think a lot of people will take advantage of these new spaces.”
Terry said the entrance to the garage Monday, Aug. 27, through Wednesday, Aug. 29, will be off John Marshall Drive and the 5 ½ alley. Beginning on Thursday, the 30, the main entrance on 6th Avenue will be open.
During the week of August 27 parking in the new facility will be free. Prices go into effect after Labor Day. The garage will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. each Monday through Friday, with no overnight parking.
