Visitors and Vendors Daily/Cash Parking

Nearly all of UC's parking facilities use "Pay-in-Lane" (PIL) systems. Cash (currency up to and including $20 and/or coins) and credit cards are accepted.

Parking for visitors and vendors is available in all garages on the Medical and West Campuses. Rates vary by facility and are based on the length of stay. Surface parking lots are for permit parking only.

Guest Parking/Variances

Guests must use pay garages. Individuals, departments or sponsoring groups may arrange to pay for parking by completing a Request for Special Parking Form online. This form should also be completed to alert Parking Services of large programs for which individuals are to pay for parking. Requests for parking variances must be submitted five or more business days in advance of the date the variance is desired. It is the responsibility of faculty, staff and students to make parking regulations known to their invited guests or visitors. Guests are subject to parking regulations.

Stall Designation

Parking is permitted only in marked stalls.

White stall: White stalls designate parking permitted with a proper access card, decal, permit, key card or in garages with event or spitter tickets, unless temporarily signed otherwise.

Red stall: Red stalls designate reserved parking.

Yellow curb: Yellow curbs or lines designate firelanes. Firelanes are tow away zones and must be kept clear at all times.

Blue stall: Blue stalls designate reserved and non-reserved handicap parking with a proper university decal or permit.
