Lot C parking is available for guest and staff parking. JABSOM employees with a valid parking pass/permit are allowed to park in Lot C. Daily guests are expected to pay the daily rate posted in the parking lot.

Metered street parking is limited in the streets around the school. Most metered street parking near the Library is available from Mondays through Saturdays from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Some streets only allow parking up until 3:30 PM. Please be prepared and bring coins if planning to use paid street parking. Also, please carefully read parking signs where you plan to park your vehicles.

Kakaʻako Waterfront Park parking is strongly discouraged and your vehicle is subject to towing.

Mopeds & Motorcycles

Lot B should be used for motorcycles and mopeds parking, specifically in the first two stalls. Lot B is off of Keawe Street, between Lot C and the Biosciences Research Building (BSB), on the makai side. The stalls are located immediately on the right after entering the gate. Please do not try to enter or exit under the gate arms. The underground sensors are not sensitive enough for these smaller vehicles. Please maneuver around the ends of the gate arms to enter and exit the lot.


Bike racks are located outside the makai entrance to the MEB and the courtyard entrance to the BSB. There are bike racks also located in the courtyard side of the Cancer Center. Be sure to lock your bikes as thefts have occurred in the past.
