Hospital employees' parking assignment is governed by policies established with Hospital Administration. These guidelines apply to HSF and HS employees as well. The UAB Medical Center is a high volume area and many facilities are at full capacity. A waiting list is kept for most facilities in that area.
Employees parking in facilities other than remote can request on-call access to the 5th or 6th Avenue Decks, or University Boulevard Deck, if needed for no additional charge. On-call access in the 5th or 6th Avenue Decks is available from 2:30 p.m. - 8 a.m. weekdays, or all day on weekends. For University Boulevard Deck, access is 5 p.m. - 7 a.m. weekdays, or all day on weekends. To add this free access, call our office or fill out the request form.
We also place evening shift (after 2 p.m.) and night shift employees in the 6th Avenue deck. To qualify for evening and night shift parking, an employee must provide a verification of their shift from their Director.
Incoming GME residents have the option to park in the 5th Avenue or 19th Street Decks, depending on their work assignment locations. Parking arrangements are made through the GME office during orientation. Residents on-call can access the 6th Avenue Deck from 2:30 p.m. - 7:00 a.m. weekdays, and all day on weekends.
Residents not coordinated through the GME office are considered regular employees and their parking assignment is coordinated within Hospital Administration guidelines. Assignments are made based on parking facility availability. As such, the employee is also eligible for on-call access to the 5th or 6th Avenue Decks and applicable facility waiting lists.
