You may request parking by adding your name to a waitlist, you may register for two waitlists by logging into the online parking system Park@Brown with your Brown credentials.  Once a space becomes available the Transportation Office will notify you by email.   Your parking fee will be paid for by payroll deduction and determined by your annual salary, refer to the 2021-2022 parking rates.
