Vehicles parked on campus must display a valid permit or be parked at a paid meter from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
This option for a visitor permit is virtual; therefore, it is not required to display the parking receipt on the dashboard of your vehicle. Enforcement utilizes a License Plate Reader system to track the validation of your vehicle parked on campus.
In order to use the Pay by Plate option, the following instructions should be applied:
Pay by Plate visitor permits purchased at the Stadium Lots near SECU Arena or West Village Garage are not valid on core campus until after 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Only visitors issued a parking code by an on campus department or those driving an EPA certified SmartWay Elite vehicle who are purchasing a "Green" visitor permit may use the "Pay & Display" function at the paystation. When using the Pay & Display option, a paper permit will print out and should be placed in a visible spot on the vehicle's dashboard.
Center for the Arts patrons as well as visitors attending football or basketball games should follow the posted parking signage and/or the instructions of the event staff upon arrival to corresponding campus lots or garages.
Parking & Transportation Services has implemented a new system that allows users to download the ParkMobile app from the App Store or Google Play for the purchase of a same-day virtual visitor parking permit ahead of time. You must have your license plate information to input into the ParkMobile app.
Look for instructional signage in the garages and near paystations. You can also see
the video above for more information.
General Visitor: Park in designated visitor or overflow spaces. General visitors may not park in department visitor guest spaces. Purchase parking permit at a yellow paystation, located in all garages and lots on campus or through the ParkMobile app.
Department Guest Visitor: Individuals unaffiliated with TU, who are visiting campus at the request/invitation
of a TU department. A faculty/staff member will provide this person with a parking
code prior to their visit. These guests should utilize the "Pay & Display" function
at the paystation and park in either a visitor or department guest visitor space.
Authorized TU faculty/staff may fill out and submit the Department Guest Code Request Form online.
“Green” Visitor: Discounted Green visitor permits are offered on hourly, daily, evening or summer visitor parking permits for EPA Certified SmartWay Elite vehicles. Violators using a Green permit whose vehicle is not eligible are subject to a $75 fine for improper parking. Please see the signage at the paystations for the list of eligible vehicles.
