BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — It just got a little easier to park on the LSU campus. The new parking garage at union square is now open and nearly 750 new spaces are available.
The facility was set to open six weeks ago, but had to be delayed. We're told students who pre-paid for parking will be credited forty dollars for their inconvenience.
The parking garage is open from every day from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. and university officials are delighted.
"We've got a great facility here and it's going to add a lot to the university," Gary Graham, LSU Transportation, said.
First floor parking is available for LSU faculty and staff and there's paid parking available for visitors on the second, third, and fourth floors, along with dedicated parking for students. The cost is $1.50 an hour.
