What Visitors Need to Know about Parking
Visitor Parking Map


Regulations
All parking areas are restricted 24 hours-per-day, seven days-per-week. You must purchase a short-term parking permit from a dispenser unless you have received a parking pass in advance.  At the Dispenser, you have the option to Pay-by-License Plate or Pay and Display the permit.  If paying by license plate number, there is no reason to return to your vehicle.  The enforcement staff will validate parking privileges by scanning the license plate.  If opting for Pay-and-Display, the permit must be displayed on the drivers side dash and visible to the enforcement officer.  If you received a visitor permit in advance of your visit to the campus, it must be displayed on the dash of the vehicle or the vehicle is subject to citation.

Event Parking Information
Parking is included with the event ticket. Go to the Event Parking Website, search for the event you are attending and register your license plate.  Your license plate will be scanned to validate parking privileges; no additional permit purchase required.  Please be sure to only park in areas designated for visitor parking to avoid being cited.

Short-Term Parking Permit Costs:
$2 for 2 hours
$3 for 4 hours
$5 for 12 hours
