A few years ago as the third building at USG was completes a parking structure soon followed.  This significantly assisted with the growing student population.  Over the past year a second parking structure was building with funds provided by Montgomery County. This second structure was part of an expansion project which will see the addition of a fourth academic building.  See a rendering of this new building here.

View the USG page which discusses the new parking program.
