If you are a guest, we provide a number of parking options and for your convenience offer the services of our campus shuttle to move around after parking. Options are available if you are:
- a guest for the day
- driving a government vehicle
- coming on campus for a specific event
- looking for parking for your construction team
- a vendor for an event
- in a charter service
Visiting for the day
For your convenience, you may purchase a day permit for $7 to
park in one of the commuter parking lots. You may purchase a day permit at our guest kiosks located at
the entrances of campus on:
- Knoles Drive
- McConnell Drive
- San Francisco Street
- Riordan Road
Beginning Fall 2012, the visitor kiosks located at all entrances to campus offer lot specific permits for P13, P62 and P66. Pay-and-display units are located in designated lots and offer a limited number of spaces for short term parking in P7, P16, and P45.
Guest permits may be purchased online and printed from home or office. Simply log on to "Manage My Parking", create a guest account, and select "purchase permit" for available options. Locations include P13 (behind Cline Library), P66 (Skydome) and P62 (off McConnell Drive).
Day permits may also be purchased at our office located
in building 91. The kiosks and our office accepts major credit cards only.
Cash and check payments can be made at Student and Departmental Accounts located in building 1. If you only have cash, please contact our office so that we
may provide assistance.
Guests may park in either the Knoles or San Francisco garage. The Knoles garage offers an hourly rate of $2, and a daily rate of $10. The San Francisco garage offers an hourly rate of $B1.50, and a daily rate of $7 due to the inconvenience of purchasing the permit at the San Francisco kiosk. Once the gates are installed in the new structure, the hourly and daily rates will be the same as the Knoles garage. The parking garages are available for day, evening, or weekend parking.
Note: Guests with a state-issued,
disability-access license plate or placard must obtain and display a valid
university parking permit.
Vehicles with a government license plate do not require a
permit. These license plates typically begin with the letter "G" or
have some other indicator that they are a government vehicle. Feel free to
contact our office to verify your plates will not require an additional permit.

a specific date (conference permits), or as needed throughout the year (department permits). Permits cost $4 per permit, per day if paying with a department

Construction team parking
A parking permit is
required to park on campus at all times. Permits are also required to
park inside a lay down or site fence area. In order to obtain permits
for campus projects please go through the Project Manager designated to the
project by Facility Services. The need for parking on the project will be
determined between Parking Services and the Project Manager. Due to
multiple projects across campus as well as the needs of the permit holders it
may not always be possible for all construction personnel to be parked on site
or near the area of work. There will be at least one all area permit
issued in order to facilitate meetings across campus or any other need for
vehicle movement. The job superintendent can use the all area
permit for their own use or can allow for use by other vehicles on the job site
as need arises. If the superintendent has a need for another
vehicle to be in site area they will then need to park their vehicle in the
same zone as the other permitted vehicles. All other parking need will be
in a designated location provided there is space available. Any citation
issued to any vehicle will be the responsibility of the driver. A vehicle
is in jeopardy of being booted after fines of $150 have accrued.
Service Vendor parking
A service vendor, for
the purpose of obtaining a parking permit, is defined as supplier of any goods
or services conducting business on campus for short periods of time. Examples
of vendors include, but are not limited to, florists, restaurant and food
delivery companies, computer repair companies, and vending machine companies. A
permit is required to park on campus, Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 10
p.m. Once a business card or other validation has been filed with us a daily
permit can be purchased in our office during regular business hours or yearly
