Visitor Parking

Visitors to the University have three options for parking - pay lots, Pay-By-Phone meters, or a day pass /temporary permit. V Permits are available to vendors doing business with University departments and offices.

PAY LOTS

Patrolled from 7am-10pm
$2.00 per hour

The Bookstore pay lot has gated parking booths, spitter tickets, and cashiers who accept cash, credit card, or sticker/stamp validations as a valid form of payment.

Commuter Services installed kiosks in the Business Loop, Union, and Student Services pay lots that replaced the gated parking booths and attendants. The kiosks function as the point of contact for purchasing and validating parking for guests and visitors to campus. There will no longer be spitter tickets or pay lot attendants, rather customers can purchase their desired time through the kiosk using their license plate and credit card. Kiosks work similar to a parking meter and payment or a validation must be made to initiate a parking session, not when leaving the pay lot. The kiosk system allows you to be notified when parking is going to expire and give you the option to add time from your mobile device. Vehicles parked in a pay lot with no valid form of payment will be ticketed. For further information on kiosks, contact Billy Kurek at parkingcoupon@utah.edu

Credit cards and coupon validations are the only acceptable form of payment - cash is no longer accepted when parking in the Business Loop, Union, or Student Services pay lots. Incorrect license plate entry or failure to submit appropriate payment may result in citation. When using the extend by phone feature, a service charge of $.25 will be charged in addition to the parking rate.

If you are a University department and want to purchase validations or trade in sticker validations, contact us at parkingcoupon@utah.edu. Please allow 24-48 hours for processing once the stickers are returned.

PAY-BY-PHONE METERS
