The new parking structure is officially "OPEN" as of Dec. 2, 2013. Thanks to Erica from VAPAHCS' Pulmonary Service for being the first to park in the new structure and helping to cut the ribbon with VAPAHCS Director Lisa Freeman and AFGE Local 2110 President Lori Bess.

Vehicles with registration months SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER & DECEMBER are asked to park in the off-site lot for the month of DECEMBER. Monitoring of vehicles entering the campus occurs between 6:00 am - 10:00 am, Monday - Friday.
To improve parking on the Palo Alto Division, the valet parking service has been expanded to include a new lot in addition to the lot behind the Fisher House. The new valet lot is located in Lot H2 (view parking map). Valet hours for this lot are the same, running from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm. Lot H2 now is for valet ONLY (no self-parking is permitted; the lot is closed during non-valet hours).
For VA Staff: The on-site/off-site parking guidelines remain the same. This means that the ENTIRE campus is considered “on-site” parking from 6:00 am to 10:00 am. Attendants monitor vehicles along loop road as well as entering Lot 100W and the lot behind the valet lot between the hours of 6:00 am to 10:00 am. After 10:00 am, any staff member may park on-site, or use the valet service.
Off-site parking for VA staff is located to the rear of the campus, with access from Hanover Street.
The address is 3201-3251 Hillview Avenue.
