Parking Details

Weekday Parking: UNC Charlotte provides six free parking spaces across from the McMillan Greenhouse for gardens, greenhouse, and parking services visitors. You may park in one of these spaces Monday – Friday if you obtain a temporary parking permit from the Parking and Transportation Services (PATS). These spaces are located in the PATS office parking lot.

The PATS Office will give you a free 4-hour, hang-tag permit for your rear-view mirror. The PATS Office is conveniently located across the street from the McMillan Greenhouse.

If the visitor spaces are full on weekdays, additional visitor parking is located East Deck 1 and the Union Deck. Find these decks on the campus parking map. Both decks are a six-minute walk from the McMillan Greenhouse with parking fees of $5 for the first hour and $2 each additional hour.

Weekend Parking: Unless a parking space is marked by a sign indicating that it is reserved, you may park in any space on campus for free without a permit.

Have you ever wanted to be able to take stunning close-up photos? Wish you could get a closer look at some of nature’s miniature flowers and creatures? Join Wendy Wilson, an avid iPhone photographer at McMillan Greenhouse where she will show you how you can photograph the vast world hiding in plain sight.

The workshop will start in the classroom where you will fit your own macro lens on your smartphone (no adhesives or mounting strips or special equipment required!). After practicing using our lenses in class, we will go on a photography scavenge in the greenhouse where you can get up close with beautiful and curious plants and flowers and discover the huge world of macro for yourself. We will reconvene after your photo foray in the classroom for some tips on editing your photos for that professional look.
