Department-Hosted Guest Parking Portal

Parking & Visitor Services has implemented a new online visitor parking request portal for department-hosted visitor parking. Passes purchased with the new online portal will replace the complimentary visitor parking request form, as well as the blue visitor parking passes. Any blue visitor parking passes that departments already have in their possession may still be used.

Benefits of the new department-hosted guest parking passes:

  • It's quick and easy for your staff to self-manage your guest parking needs
  • No scrambling to get last minute guests added to a parking list 
  • Passes can be printed for use or scanned from a phone
  • Passes can be emailed directly to your visitors
  • Greater flexibility on where visitors can park – passes are valid at attended visitor lots as well as pay and display areas and single-space meters

The cost of guest parking remains the same; passes ordered through the online portal are $8.00, and the hosting department is billed directly via speed code. 

In order to get setup for access to the online portal, please fill out the following Access Form and email it to

Once access has been approved, you will receive login credentials and a password, as well as a copy of our helpful user guide. You can expect to hear back from us within 1-2 business days with the status of your approval.
