Parking for visitors before 4 p.m. is available at meters in front of Cole Field House or the Union Lane or Stadium Drive Parking garages. You can also try the new Parkmobile App (information follows). Rates vary per hour, but average $3 per hour at most garages. After 4 p.m., visitors are welcome to park in the adjacent Lot 1 (see photo at right) without a permit, following posted restrictions.
Parkmobile’s mobile payment system allows motorists to pay for parking through an application on their mobile phone, eliminating the need to carry change, predict their length of stay, and continually feed the meter.
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers can register for free at www.parkmobile.com or download the mobile app. Once registered, they can use the mobile app, the internet, or a toll free number to pay for parking. After setting up the account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. They can also select the option to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session.
How to Get and Use the Parkmobile App
- First, download the mobile app and register. (for iPhone, Android, Windows, and Blackberry)
- Look for the Parkmobile sign or sticker to identify ZONE#.
- Enter in the ZONE# and parking space number and continue with payment.
- That’s it! You can opt-in to receive a notification 15 minutes before your parking session is set to expire. The notification will give you the option to extend time.
