Visitors, Department Guests & Vendors

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.

Important Information

  • All vehicles parked on campus must have a valid permit during enforcement hours:  Monday - Thursday from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Permits are not required in most locations from Friday at 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. on Monday.
  • Permits are not required when the University is officially closed.
  • There are new paystations in Lot 6 (near the Health Center) and Lot 20 (near SECU Arena).

How to Use a Visitor Paystation

Push any button on the paystation to begin.  Paystation accepts cash in the amount of $10, $5, $1, quarters and nickels (dimes and pennies are not accepted) and no change/refund is given. Debit/Credits cards are also accepted.  Place the ticket from the paystation, face up on the dash of the vehicle.  There are free 5 minute spaces to use in order to retrieve the permit from the paystation.

Pay by Phone & Pay by Plate

Parking & Transportation is  implementing an exciting new phone app that will allow those using visitor parking to download the Park Mobile app from the App Store or Google Play and purchase parking on campus through the app.  We are also transitioning the paystations to a pay by plate system for those who use cash or credit cards.  As with the Park Mobile app, users input their license plate to purchase a virtual visitor parking permit.  These changes have already gone live in West Village and the rest of the campus will transition over the course of the Spring semester.  Please look for instructional signage as the changes go live in stages across campus.

Types of Visitors

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.
