General Pavilion Permit

A month-to-month parking permit is available to those who wish to park in the available PUBLIC SPACES in the Pavilion. The cost is $75 per month which MUST be paid upfront. Only a maximum of 100 permits will be sold each month on a first come – first served basis.

Regular ‘Hunting’ Permit

This permit is valid for parking in designated surface lots (see map). This permit does not assure the holder of a parking space in the lot of their preference. When the convenient spaces are all taken the permit holder should expect to look for space in a less convenient area designated for paid staff parking and walk to his/her destination.

This permit does not represent permission to park in a public parking area (7 a.m. – 4 p.m.) without paying the parking fee. Cars associated to accounts of faculty and staff with regular ‘hunting’ permits may only park at regular public spaces in the surface lots without paying the meter fee only after 4 p.m. weeknights and on weekends. This never includes: “short-term” meters (60 minutes or less); the Sandburg, NWQ, Pavilion, EMS, Union and the School of Business garage; spaces reserved for authorized users; or special use and special visitor parking.

Indoor Reserve Permit

This permit is valid in one of the campus parking garages: Sandburg, Kenilworth, NWQ, EMS, the Pavilion and Lubar (School of Business). The permit is valid only in the parking garage designated on the permit, except on weekends when reserved permits are also valid in outdoor lots. Space is guaranteed at all times. Any misuse of a reserved permit or a gate card (letting someone into or out of a facility for any reason), parking more than one car, transferring the permit to someone else without notifying the Transportation Services Office or using an inappropriately obtained permit or gate card will subject the user to described fines and forfeitures.

Garage Pay Stations
All parking garages on campus use the same methods for payment. There are three different machines used during a standard transaction, each will be described below. There are three different ways users can pay for parking in the garage.

  • Parking Ticket – Pushing the appropriate button will dispense a parking ticket. Users can use this ticket with pay stations or the exit station to pay for parking.
  • Panthercard (Student / Faculty ID) – If the user has the appropriate permit registered with their account, they can scan their Panthercard to open the gate.
  • Park Mobile – The Park Mobile app will generate a barcode that is scanned by the machine. It will automatically connect the users parking to their account.

Entrance Station
This is the machine used when entering a parking garage.
Here is a list of the different parts of the machine, and descriptions on how they are used.

  • A: This screen shows the status of the machine and the time. Only use a machine that says ‘OPEN’.
  • B: This button prints out a ticket for the user. The ticket prints directly below the screen. This ticket allows users to pay for their parking at a pay station or exit machine.
  • C: This is a card scanner for Panthercards. If the user has an appropriate permit registered with their account, it will lift the gate.
  • D: This is a barcode scanner for Park Mobile. Using the Park Mobile app, users can generate a barcode from the ‘gated parking’ option. The machine will beep when it has been read.
