Students park for free during their rotation at Carolina HealthCare System. The coordinator will contact you about which parking decks you will have access to during your rotation. On your first day, the coordinator will give you a code to open the parking gate or instruct you to use the visitor entrance. Thereafter, your badge will open the gate.
