Parking Access

Reminders for Permit Holders

We use license plate recognition technology to ensure that parked vehicles have valid permits and are parked in the appropriate areas. It's important to keep your vehicle license plate information current at all times. 

  • Up to two vehicles may be linked to a permit, but only one vehicle may be parked on campus at a time.
  • Paid hourly parking or a valid visitor permit is required for an additional linked vehicle to be parked on campus simultaneously.
  • Permit holders are responsible for ensuring license plate information is correct. Failure to do so may result in citations.

If you need to leave your car parked on campus for an extended period of time, contact us to get prior authorization.

Vehicles parked in one area for more than 72 consecutive hours without prior authorization will be cited as abandoned and relocated at the owner’s expense. 

Customers with permits that include garage access are provided an annual access keycard (annual permit holders) or a garage access keycard (monthly permit holders).

  • Garage gates are activated by scanning the QR code (located on the back of the keycard) on the readers located at garage entrances and exits.
  • Keycards may be used to exit only if the last use was for entry, and vice versa. If a ticket is pulled to enter a garage, payment must be made at exit.

These garages are reserved for visitors 5 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday. Permit holders exiting these garages after 8 a.m. on these days are subject to additional fees.
