There are three pay stations on campus. They are located in Lot 15E, Campus Recreation Center, Lot 5, Campus Life Building and Lot 2, Anderson Hall. The pay stations give you the ability to purchase a daily permit for $5. This permit will expire after 24 hours from time of purchase. The receipt will need to be displayed in your vehicle. Place the receipt face up on the dashboard, passenger side. This purchase will allow you to park in any lot on campus. It does not cover reserve spaces, handicap spaces, no parking zones and meters/pay stations.
