Metered Parking

Meters are available at Main Campus only and are offered on a first come, first served basis for visitors and guests only.


Download the ParkMobile app to pay for a metered parking space directly from your phone.

See our ParkMobile page for more information.

Meters are enforced Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Metered spaces are free after 4 p.m. Meters are enforced during term breaks; the only time meters are not enforced is on the weekend.

Smart Meters accept coins and credit cards at a minimum amount of $1.50 per hour (you can also pay for metered parking and extend your time with ParkMobile). The maximum time limit for a meter is 3 hours.

Failure to display time on a meter may result in parking citations and/or your vehicle being towed at your expense. Paid parking permits are not valid for meter parking.

Meters displaying a red, out-of-order cover are considered general parking. If you find a defective meter, please report it to Parking Services at (505) 224-4637.
