Permit-specific surface lot access information is available here.

During campus-wide events like football games or concerts, an annual access keycard grants free access to all public day-of-event surface lots and garages.

  • Present your annual access keycard for no-cost entry into surface lots being sold at an event rate, regardless of final destination.
  • If your permit normally provides access to the garage that is being sold at an event rate, you may use your annual access keycard to enter the garage at no cost.
  • Keep your annual access keycard available year-round: If you do not have your annual access keycard, you will be required to pay the nonrefundable event parking rate to enter the facility.

Reminders for Permit Holders

We use license plate recognition technology to ensure that parked vehicles have valid permits and are parked in the appropriate areas. It's important to keep your vehicle license plate information current at all times. 

  • Multiple vehicles may be linked to a permit, but only one vehicle may be parked on campus at a time.
  • Paid hourly parking or a valid visitor permit is required for an additional linked vehicle to be parked on campus simultaneously.
  • Permit holders are responsible for ensuring license plate information is correct. Failure to do so may result in citations.

Customers with permits that include garage access are provided an annual access keycard (annual permit holders) or a garage access keycard (monthly permit holders).

  • Garage gates are activated by scanning the QR code (located on the back of the keycard) on the readers located at garage entrances and exits.
  • Keycards may be used to exit only if the last use was for entry, and vice versa. If a ticket is pulled to enter a garage, payment must be made at exit.

These garages are reserved for visitors 5 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday. Permit holders exiting these garages after 8 a.m. on these days are subject to additional fees.
