Visitor parking is available at metered spaces located at the Walker Avenue Garage. Meters are enforced Monday through Friday from 7:30am until 9pm.

We appreciate your cooperation with this matter. A VALID UMBC PERMIT must be on-file with UMBC Parking service for any vehicle parked in any non-metered space. Failure to register vehicle may result in the issuance of a violation. Virtual permits are enforced year round.

The Walker Avenue Apartments Leasing Office has great confidence in the leadership and student development direction embraced within the entire Division of Student Affairs and we are proud partners with UMBC’s Residential Life program. We value our community staff (CD and RAs) for the work they do, and also Residential Life’s main office staff in Erickson Hall who support our operations through occupancy eligibility, marketing, after-hours assistance, overall guidance, and leadership.
In return, we embrace Residential Life philosophies and encourage all Walker residents to be mindful of the Community Living Principles of UMBC Residential Life and how they may be brought to fruition within Walker Avenue Apartments.
