REMINDER TO PAY ATTENTION TO ALL SIGNAGE: parking restrictions may change at any time.
In addition to the metered spots in front of MakeHaven and around the block, parking options include:
Discounted Parking at 270 State St. Garage:
Park New Haven donates 1/2 price parking stickers for use at this garage. WIth this, parking is $1/hour, and you don't need to move your car as you do with metered 2 hour spots.
Parking stickers are single-use and available in MakeHaven on the table by the entrance. Currently the courtyard door does not respond to MakeHaven IDs. Use that door to exit only unless you borrow the back door key (by the trash/recycling bins and woodshop windows) to unload.
