Visitors should expect to pay for parking on campus on weekdays. Visitor permits that will allow a vehicle to park in Blue, Red, or Yellow lots may be purchased in our office in increments of half-day, ($5), one-day, ($10), or one-week ($40). Visitor permits that will allow a vehicle to park in a Housing lot are also available at a cost of $3 per day. Housing lots are restricted 24/7 Monday through Friday, so in order to park outside a residence hall overnight, a visitor would need to purchase a two-day Housing visitor permit ($6).
Visitors may choose to park without buying a permit by taking advantage of one of the methods of hourly parking available. Several lots have meters that accept coin payments, (these lots are designated on the map with a meter icon), and some long-term meters are also equipped to accept payments by mobile phone using Parkmobile. See the Hourly Parking page for more detailed information on these two methods of parking, including rates (which vary by meter type and location).
Hourly parking is also available to visitors in the Mississippi St. Garage or Allen Fieldhouse Garage. Parking in the garages is $1.75 for the first hour or any portion of an hour, and $1.50 per hour for all subsequent hours.
