Parking Basics

All vehicles parked on campus must have a valid parking permit associated with your license plate. This includes the Chandler Ave Parking lot and the recently-opened Simpson Ave parking lot. Your vehicle license plate serves as the permit and must be visible at all times; no physical permits are issued.

A mobile app is now available at passportparking.com. The app allows you to choose daily which lot to park in, offering maximum flexibility and convenience. Choose the Chandler-Century Lot (Zone 97700) if you need convenient parking for an hour or the day; or, the Simpson Lot (Zone 97701) if you have a few minutes to walk from the Simpson lot north of Ray Hall. Signage indicates zone number of each lot.
