    • Lot 2 – Faculty and staff, special guests, accessible over flow parking
    • Lot 3 – Accessible parking
    • Lot 4 – VIP and open/general parking
    • Lot 7 — Open/general parking
  • Please note: Faculty/staff, drivers with disabilities, senior attendees and VIPs should enter the campus from Rossville Boulevard in the RIGHT LANE so they can turn right (toward the Children's Learning Center) from the right lane.
  • Individuals with limited mobility and requiring assistance will be directed to designated parking upon arrival at the main entrance to the campus. These vehicles should also enter in the RIGHT LANE.
  • Guests, faculty and staff are encouraged to park at the MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center employee lot, which is in the rear of the facility (the lot adjoining CCBC Essex.) It is very easy to enter and exit, and the designated parking lots are close to the tent.
