There are a few parking decks around campus. Your best bet will likely be Fishburne or Oxford parking lot as they are the closest to the library. Parking fees are $12 a day. For more information about visitor parking, please visit Emory's parking site.


If you are staying in the Emory area, there are public transportation options. Emory shuttles are free, and they run fairly often. Shuttles of interest may include the CCTMA, which stops in Downtown Decatur and the Emory Conference Center, as well as the many shuttles that go down the Clifton Corridor in front of the Emory Conference Center. The Emory Conference Center also has its own shuttle that you can request to take you to campus. More information about the Emory Cliff Shuttles can be found here:.
