TUCC has no business relationship with these garages and does not play any role in making their policies. In order to receive the discount, students must have their parking ticket validated and show their Temple ID card. The validation and list of participating garages are available at the security desk in the ground floor lobby area. A list of participating garages is also available on the TUCC web site in the "About Us" section.
