New Parking App! 

All campus parking locations where hourly permits are available will now be managed through PassportParking, which allows users to pay with their smartphones.
With this expansion, there will be several changes to campuswide parking procedures, including:
  • Hourly parking will change to “pay by plate,” requiring users to key in their license plate at the dispenser or via the app instead of displaying a parking receipt on their window.
  • Three dispensers will be accessible to users opting to pay at a machine. The dispensers are located at the Stadium Lot, the first floor of Parking Structure 1, and the first floor of Parking Structure 2. Please note, several outdated machines in other locations will no longer be in service.
  • Visitor or non-decal parking will now be purchased by the hour.  The parking rate is $1 per hour with a 15-cent convenience fee per session. A daily rate will no longer be available.
  • The option to park in any space with any permit will be valid after 5 p.m. for FS/G/R stalls. B permit stalls will continue to be limited to B permit holders only, which allows users to park overnight.
This expansion does not affect FS/G/B/R-permit holders, who will continue to park in designated spots as their permits allow.
