Visitor Lot

The Visitor Lot is located on the west end of the Walsh Architecture parking lot.  During regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 7a.m. – 4p.m.), visitors must purchase a permit at the pay station (credit cards only) near the entrance to the lot.  The permit must be displayed face up on the driver's side of the vehicle’s dashboard, so it is visible to parking enforcement staff.

No permit is required outside of regular business hours and on holidays.

If the Visitor Lot reaches capacity, visitors must purchase a permit and then park in any non-reserved space within the Joyce, Compton or Walsh Architecture Lots.

The current rate schedule is:

  • 1hr - Free (must obtain permit and display on dash)
  • 2hrs - $1
  • 3hrs - $2
  • 4hrs - $3
  • 4+hrs - $8
