Self-serve pay machines

A number of parking areas on campus contain permit issuance machines. Machine payment is required in parking stalls governed by those machines. Permit issuance machine payments are non-refundable. Please note that only permits issued from permit issuance machines that govern a particular lot/area are valid in that lot/area.

All vehicles parked on campus are required to have a valid parking permit from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. M-F, and from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. See the locations listed below for specific rates.

Be sure to read the signs! Parking is enforced on all days at all times, so please make sure you park legally.
