  • Parking Instructions for Guests
  • Drive up to the University Avenue Ramp (circled in RED on the map) and let the attendant know that you have a reservation under **MERC 36th Annual Conference**. If there is no attendant pull forward into the ramp and grab a ticket.
  • If the ramp says “Event Rate”, “Reservation Only” or “Full” you are still able to park since a space has been reserved for you.
  •  You are NOT responsible for paying the event parking rate (that is already covered for you).
  • The attendant will ask you to pull forward and pull a ticket from the machine.
  • At the exit, please insert the ticket into the machine and the gate arm will raise. If  there was no attendant present when you pulled into the ramp, press the “call for help” button on the machine and let the attendant know you have a reservation under **MERC 36th Annual Conference**.
