Visitor Parking

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


Patrolled Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-10 p.m.
$2.00 per hour; $20 daily maximum

Commuter Services installed kiosks in the Business Loop, Union, Student Services, Medical Garage, and Bookstore 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 are no longer entrance tickets or pay lot attendants, rather customers purchase their desired time through the kiosk using their vehicle's 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 us at

Credit cards and coupon validations are the only acceptable form of payment - cash is no longer accepted when parking in the Business Loop, Union, Student Services, Medical Garage, or Bookstore 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.

Department Coupon Codes

If you are a University department and want to purchase coupon codes or trade in sticker validations, an online order form needs to be completed. Please allow two full business days to process any coupon code requests. For any questions regarding coupon codes, contact us at
