Parking at MUSC

Outpatient Parking

Self-parking for outpatients is $.75 per half hour, up to a maximum of $3.00 in the Ashley-Rutledge, Jonathan Lucas or Courtenay Drive garage. If parking exceeds two hours, all charges over $3 will be paid by the hospital; but to receive this courtesy the ticket must be validated.  Check with reception staff in the area where you receive your care. 

Valet parking is available for a fee of $5.00 at the Ashley River Tower, the Rutledge Tower, or at Hollings Cancer Center.  Drive your vehicle to the main entrance of any of these buildings for valet service.

Inpatient Parking

Inpatients' families and visitors may park for $.75 per half hour.  The maximum daily rate (up to 24 hours) is $6.00.  To receive the reduced rate, the visitor should provide the patient's last name and room number to the cashier when exiting the parking facility.  The cashier will issue a receipt.  This will allow unlimited additional exits during the 24-hour period at no charge.

Mobility-Impaired Patients/Handicapped Parking

All MUSC public parking locations offer accessible parking. For wheelchair assistance, use a courtesy phone near an elevator or call 876-0101 from your cell phone.  South Carolina State law provides that there is no charge for parking in metered or timed facilities for vehicles which display a handicap plate or placard and which are driven by or transporting the handicapped individual.  If the handicapped individual is not in the vehicle, the posted parking rate applies.
