Visitor Parking Payments

Accepted Forms of payment at Western Parking gates – Amex, MasterCard and Visa.


Customers utilizing visitor parking spaces are expected to have an acceptable method of payment. Customers wishing to pay by coin should use the Pay and Display machines located across campus. See the PARKING MAP for Pay and Display locations.

When payment cannot be made at the gate, a Customer Service Representative may take customer information so that a fee can be collected later and the parker can be on their way. While making payment later may be convenient for customers, our parking gate system is not set up to efficiently and effectively take payments/information over the intercom; for this reason, an administrative fee is charged on all non-payment transactions.

When you have failed to make payment at the time of parking:

  • it is the customer’s responsibility to reach out to the Parking Office if needed, and to clear up outstanding parking fees
  • gate parking charges are not eligible for appeal
