What They Do

  • Your guest will pull a ticket and enter the facility. (Your guest will have a parking space even if the facility is marked as “Reservation Only”.)
  • At the automated pay machine, your guest should push the "Press for Help" button for assistance to exit. He or she should let the customer service representative know about the reservation, including the name of the function or event.

Another Option To Pay For Guest Parking

For all other public parking facilities, prepaid coupons allow departments to provide paid parking for visitors. These coupons can be picked up at our office or delivered for you using a University courier at your department's expense.
