Parking and Public Transportation
Parking for off-campus visitors is available in the Hull Street deck. Enter at the south entrance near Baxter Street. Library visitors can bypass the pay machine on the 3rd level and proceed directly to the front desk inside Special Collections to sign in with their vehicle tag number. Please note that UGA faculty, staff, and students cannot utilize this validation system, and should pay the hourly rate at the pay machine in order to avoid a citation.
Handicapped parking is located on Level 3 of the deck as well as a pedestrian bridge connecting the parking deck to the quad in front of the Special Collections Library.
Extra visitor parking is offered at the Tate Center Parking Deck for an hourly fee. The Tate Center Parking Deck is located one block south of the intersection of Baxter Street and South Lumpkin Street. See: Parking Locations and Fees. All University of Georgia affiliates must abide by parking regulations set forth by UGA Parking Services. For more information about visitor parking, please visit the Parking Services website or call 706-542-PARK (7275).
Access to the UGA Special Collections Libraries is via public transportation through UGA Campus Transit. The East-West Route makes stops by the building on both Waddell Street and Hull Street and runs from 6:30AM – 1:00AM. UGA buses on the Orbit and Family Housing routes can be accessed one block east at the corner of Lumpkin and Wray Streets. The Milledge Avenue bus can be accessed one block north of the Special Collections Libraries on the corner of Broad and Hull Streets.
Athens Transit has several bus stops near, but not adjacent to, the Special Collections Library. The stops are on Broad Street, Baxter Street, and Lumpkin Street. The Multi-Modal Transportation Center, where all Athens Transit buses stop, is located 0.8 miles from the building and is an estimated 15 minute walk.
