Q. Where should I park on campus as a visitor?

Where should I park on campus as a visitor or if I need to stop by campus briefly to pick up a book or print?


There is now an option for 30 minute parking on campus if you need to visit the library to retrieve a book from Domeside pickup or print at the Student Union.


Pay Stations & PayByPhone Costs

  • 30 minutes $1 - only available on pay stations
  • 1 - 4 hours $3 per hour
  • 5 to 10 hours $15
  • Overnight $20 - Expires at 10:00 p.m. next day
  • Weekend $30 - Can only purchase Friday and expires at 10:00 p.m. Sunday

When you purchase a pay station permit or a PayByPhone permit, please note they are not valid in faculty/staff (FS), in special permit (SP), or service/vendor (SV) areas.

Purchasing a permit does not guarantee parking.  Pay stations are located at: Parking Information Booth, 3 Level 1, 7 Level 2, and P12 Level 8. Pay stations only accept bills and credit cards and they do not provide change. 

When using PayByPhone there will be a $0.35 transaction fee per transaction. When using the pay station there will be a $0.25 transaction fee only if you extend the time.
