Hours of Operation:
The campus parking system is a self-supporting enterprise. We receive no state appropriations. State policy prohibits the use of tax dollars to support the system. Therefore, all parking expenses are paid from the fees paid by students and others who park here. Parking fees are established to provide sufficient annual revenue to cover the cost of repairing and operating the lots as well as constructing new spaces. In order to keep those fees as inexpensive and equitable as possible, all users—and that includes those who work here—share the costs.
Close-in, short term, day or night parking is available at $1.50 per hour, most can be paid for two hours, however some can be paid up to four hours and some as little as thirty minutes. Meters are located in various areas throughout the campus for your convenience. Meters are enforced Monday-Thursday 7:30am to 8:00pm and Friday 7:30am to 5:00pm
If you need to come to campus frequently, you may want to purchase a parking permit at the Parking and Transportation Services Department.
