Wall & Grand Apartments
A special decal is required for on-site parking at Wall & Grand. Please discuss your options with the Parking Division.

Once you have your campus parking decal, you will need to go to the Evergreen Terrace Area Office to request an Evergreen Terrace parking decal. Evergreen Terrace parking decal restrictions and guidelines are located in the Apartments Guidebook.
