Visitor and Guest Parking


The Parking Office will be using License Plate Recognition in all lots, but the I-1 Garage will not require License Plate Registration for Visitors. The I-1 Garage on Ithan Avenue has been designated as the parking lot for Visitors to campus.


Please instruct all Visitors to park in the I-1 Garage. A parking attendant will be on duty at the Ithan entrance from 7am-9pm to assist Visitors. Visitors must obtain a ticket upon entering the garage and use the machines located near the elevators to process payment upon returning to validate the ticket. A validated ticket is required to exit the garage. An attendant will be on duty at the Ithan entrance 7am-9pm for assistance. See Rates


A new form on the Parking Portal has being instituted to accommodate a speaker or vendor with inner campus parking. Daytime parking availability is limited, and all vehicles admitted to inner campus will require License Plate Registration. Departments with frequent event speakers or vendors will be provided a unique login to the Parking Portal for a Guest Pass Request. Please contact the Parking Office to discuss setting up a Department Login. Parking Portal


The Guest Pass process on the Parking Portal still provides a printable pass. However, with the use of LPR at the Guard Houses and in the lots, the printed pass is not neccessary because the Guest's plate is registered. They can pass through the permit lane and park in the designated lot with their plate facing the drive lane.

Please notify the Parking Office in advance of any event exceeding 25 visitors, so we can insure visitor parking in the I-1 Garage. There are several new processes going into effect for Fall of 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact the Parking Office to discuss these changes. 610-519-6989 or
