A note from the Colonnade Club:

All guests, if arriving during business hours, may come down our alley to pick up keys and unload items; they must then relocate the vehicle to the Central Grounds parking garage on Emmet Street near the bookstore. The parking permit that you purchase through the club will give you access to this garage for no additional fees.
