There are four parking options for MIND Institute research participants:
- You can park in free patient parking on the north side of the parking lot near the playground (spaces are limited). When you check-in at the Research Clinic Check-in desk you will be given a parking pass that you will need to put on your dashboard.
- You can park on 50th Street for free.
- You can park in the MIND Institute's parking lot (aka Lot 25) which will necessitate you buy a $6 parking pass from the kiosk inside the bus stop shelter on the north side of the parking lot.
- You can park in the Ellison Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) parking structure (aka Parking Structure 2) which is located on Y Street and has a $2/hr. rate. Parking Structure 2 is a short walk from the MIND Institute.
After entering the building, follow signs for the Research Clinic. Please check-in at the Research Clinic reception desk.
We have free patient parking in front of the IRC, although spaces are limited. If all of the free patient parking is taken, visitor parking permits can be purchased for $6 from a dispensing machine in parking lot #18 on the east side of 48th Street (click here to view parking map), and you can then park in lot #4 or lot #18. Again, you only will need to purchase a permit if all of the free patient parking near the IRC entrance is taken.
There is no need to check-in or sign-in. A researcher should meet you in the IRC foyer, but if you arrive early, just sit and wait in the waiting area by the door.
