Baker University Center Garage and Meters
Baker University Center offers convenient, central parking locations in the Baker parking garage and metered surface Lot 122.
Metered spaces are available in Lot 122 and throughout campus. Payment for metered spaces can be managed by ParkMobile app. This app allows visitors to add time to the meter from a smartphone. It will also send reminders when time is running low.
ParkMobile is also used by Athens city meters.
Sending Materials for Events
Each organization attending a career fair-style event will have one table (unless they registered and paid for multiple tables). The table dimensions are between 60”x30” and 72”x30". We recommend bringing materials that will fit within that space.
Materials being shipped for events should be sent to the Career & Leadership Development Center. Employers are responsible for making arrangements with their preferred carrier for return of materials. Carriers can pick up items from our office.
