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.
