Parking Pay Stations

There are several parking pay stations on campus. You can use them to purchase either timed parking in a specific area or a daily visitor permit that allows you to park in any campus lot. Pay stations accept bills and coins, as well as Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express cards.

Be sure to:

  • Enter your three-digit parking space number correctly.
  • Display a disability license plate/placard if you park in a spot reserved for persons with disabilities.
  • Take your receipt with you. You don’t need to display it in your vehicle.

Timed Parking

Paying for timed parking at a pay station allows you to park in the designated lot for the specified time. The fee is $1.20 per hour for up to four hours. You can add additional time if needed.

Visitor Permits

You can use a pay station to purchase a visitor permit for $6. A visitor permit allows you to park in any campus lot, except for in reserved spaces or service/vendor spaces. Your permit will expire 24 hours from the time of purchase.
