GSA Subsidized Parking — A limited number of subsidized parking spaces are provided in three campus garages (Washington, McElderry, Caroline or Ashland) for graduate students at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine for $55 per month, which is deducted from your paycheck. To apply for a subsidized parking space, please see the instructions below. 

Process to obtain subsidized parking:

        1. Fill out the GSA Subsidized Parking Request Form.
        2. Once granted, subsidized parking is valid for 24 months. After that point, you must reapply through the request form.
        3. Indicate your preference for the garages. If you want the first available space regardless of location, list the garages in order of preference. You cannot transfer to another garage once assigned a subsidized spot.
        4. Any questions should be sent to Sage Magness, Coordinator for Graduate Student Experience, at
