The MUSC Wellness Center is a facility dedicated to good health. The center fosters the development of healthy lifestyles through the promotion of wellness attitudes and practices. More than a health club, the MUSC Wellness Center focuses on the development of total well-being, with the belief that wellness is a balance of social, emotional, spiritual and physical health. The Wellness Center is open to the entire community, for adults over 18 years of age.


Important update: As we move forward in the new year we are implementing some new parking policies to enhance the member parking experience, improve the security of the garage,and reduce abuse of our parking facility by those who are not authorized to park in the Wellness Center garage. Beginning February 1, 2020 we will be issuing parking decals to each member with a current, valid parking card. The decal should be displayed in the front left area of the windshield. This will allow MUSC Public Safety to readily identify Wellness Center members with a valid parking card. Public Safety will conduct inspections at regular intervals to enforce all parking policies. Actively identifying and ticketing non authorized vehicles should make more spaces easily accessible for parking card holders.

Parking Policy:

  • Parking cards and decals are required to park in the Wellness Center garage between the hours of 7:00am-4:30pm. These cards will also access Bee St Garage on weekends and weekdays after 4:30pm.
  • There is a two hours parking limit for all spaces at all times.
  • No overnight parking is allowed.
  • Before 8am and after 4:30pm on weekdays and during all weekend hours, we have plenty of overflow parking. During these hours, the garage is first come/first serve but there is plenty of parking in “M” lot. If you have a parking card, you can also park during these hours in the Bee St Garage.
  • Parking cards are valid for one calendar year, January 1-December 31, and must be renewed annually at the rate of $95.
  • Parking violations are subject to a $45 fine per incident.

Current Parking Card Holders

If you have already renewed your card for 2020, please stop by the Wellness Center membership desk to pick up your parking decal at your earliest convenience. If you have not yet renewed, please do so prior to February 29th to reduce any disruption in your access to the garage. ALL 2019 PARKING CARDS NOT RENEWED BY FEBRUARY 29, 2020 WILL BE DEACTIVATED AND YOU WILL NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO THE GARAGE.
