Vulcan Parking Garage

The gated garage will also be open to drivers who have registered for spaces inside, as well as members of the University community who choose to pay by the hour.

Drivers can enter the garage from East Alley, where the road has been widened and turning lanes added to ease traffic congestion. A second entrance is located near the intersection of Sixth and Park streets.

Accessible to people with disabilities, Vulcan Garage includes two elevators. Motion sensors control high-efficiency LED lighting throughout the structure, and emergency phones are available at every level.

Drivers who pay by the hour will find pay stations conveniently located on the garage's first, third and fourth levels. Anyone who forgets to stop at the pay station will be able to pay with a credit card when exiting the garage.

Parking Meters

Similar to those found on city streets and at other State System schools, the pay-by-license meter is located in LOT 17 and LOT 11.

To pay by the hour:

  • Go to the meter and enter your license plate number.
  • Select the length of your stay.
  • Pay the rate indicated with $1 bills or a credit card.

There is no reason to go back to the car. Your license plate becomes your parking permit.

If you pay by credit card you can choose to receive a text message before the meter expires. You also can use your smartphone to add time on the meter.

Use the app

To bypass the meter altogether, use a smartphone app to pay for parking.

  • Download the free PassportParking Mobile Pay app from iTunes or Google Play.
  • Register and link a credit card to your account.
  • Use the app to pay for parking in Lot 11.

Any duplication or alteration of a parking permit may result in suspension of parking privileges on campus.

Permits are not to be shared, transferred, or sold to another sibling or student. Each permit is assigned and registered to only one person and all citations and responsibilities are with the assigned person with the permit. 

Transferring or selling a permit without proper registration with the Department of Parking & Transportation is prohibited and considered an invalid permit.
