The Computer and Space Sciences building is across the street to the north of the garage, and a 5-10 minute walk away from the Paint Branch Lot.

There are paystations in these lots which can accept cash, credit cards, or department validation codes. Parking in non-visitor spaces in the garage is free after 4 pm and on weekends.
