Cost: $14 a day
NOTE: The neighborhood of Oakland is very busy during business hours; this means the garages can sometimes fill up. Once you get a space we recommend you NOT move your car during the day. This is just a precautionary measure however considering the campus is usually much quieter during the summer months
