Part-time Parking

To provide more flexibility for employees and students who may be on campus part-time, additional options are now available for the Drexel Garage and Queen Lane permit lot:

Parking Blocks

Introducing Parking Blocks, an option to purchase several parking sessions in the Drexel Garage for the spring term.

Discounted block parking is available for the spring term through Payroll Deduction (Eligible employees only) or one-time payment via credit card.

  • Blocks of 10 for $110 – limit of one block purchase per transaction. You may purchase an additional block, if needed.

Here's how it works:

  • Parker uses their DragonCard to enter the Garage
  • Parker uses their DragonCard at the exit. Their Parking Block is charged $11 against their balance*

To purchase Block Parking:

  • Log in to ParkDrexel
  • Select the Block Parking permit type (instead of the full-time permit you may have purchased in the past)
  • Continue to check-out
  • For full-time, benefits-eligible employees, payment will occur via Payroll Deduction.

Additional details:

  • *$11 is charged for each parking session. A parking session is defined as: entrance into Garage and exit by 11 p.m. Entering or exiting outside of this timeframe will incur additional charges against the Parking Block Balance.
  • There is NO credit card transaction at the exit.
  • No need to inform the Parking Office if your schedule changes.
  • Parking Blocks are only available at the Drexel Garage or Queen Lane campus.
  • Sessions may be used through Dec. 31, 2021. There is no refund for unused parking sessions.
  • Balance is displayed on the exit kiosk after each transaction.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Block Parking?

The new Block Parking option allows for employees and students to pay a single price ($110) for up to 10 parking sessions.

When can I redeem my Block Parking permit sessions?

Block parking is available seven days a week at the Drexel Garage or Queen Lane Permit Lot.

How does Block Parking work?

Block Parking works like a declining balance on your DragonCard. The full value of the Block Parking permit is $110, and each parking session is deducted from the total balance. A standard parking session will deduct $11 from the balance.

What do I do if I run out of parking sessions but I still need to park?

Additional Block Parking permits may be purchased through June 30, 2021, via ParkDrexel. Additional single-day daily parking options are available in the Drexel Garage as well starting at $17/day.

If I do not use my Block Parking permit sessions, can I get a refund?

Upon request, unused block parking permit sessions may be refunded through June 30, 2022. Additional information for employees will be forthcoming prior to the current tax year ending.

Is there a monthly charge for Block permits?

No. Your permit was paid for in full at the time of registration. Eligible employees will see a one-time payroll deduction for the full cost of the permit.

Is my DragonCard required for entry?

Yes. In order to use Block permits, your DragonCard must be scanned at the card reader located on the kiosk. Likewise, the same DragonCard must be used at the exit. To prevent misuse, the kiosks are programmed such that your exit must occur after the entrance. An additional scan (without an exit) will prevent the account from working properly.

What if I forget to scan out?

The DragonCard must be scanned at the exit in order to reset your account for the next parking session.

What if I forget my DragonCard one day?

Take a ticket at the entrance kiosk and stop into the Parking Services Office in the lobby of the General Services Building or send an email to so we can manually update your record and validate the ticket for a "free" exit. To replace a DragonCard, follow this link.
