Pay-n-Display or Pay-by-Plate parking pay machines are available for visitors. Machines are located in the parking lots of Agriculture Administration Building, Plumb Hall, and Parker Food Science Building as well as throughout campus. To pay for parking, access the nearest Pay-by-Plate machine (clearly marked by directional signs). Enter your license plate number and select the form of payment and amount of parking time desired, as indicated by printed instructions on the Pay-by-Plate machine. Since verification of payment is done via license plate, it is imperative to enter your license plate information correctly. Please verify all information before finalizing your transaction. Machines do not provide change or refunds.

Parkmobile is a visitor payment option that uses pay-by-phone and smartphone applications. You can create a Parkmobile account online at parkmobile.com, via the Parkmobile app, or via their automated phone system at 877-727-5009. After entering the required information and setting up your account, you can begin "parking sessions" by accessing your account (via one of the three methods available) and confirming your license plate number, parking zone number, and intended duration of stay. Parking sessions can be terminated early or extended via the same method used to start the parking session.
