Parking Pay Stations

Pay-by-Plate Stations are located at the stairwells on street level and near entrances to the surface parking lots. The stations include the following pay options:

  • You will now be able to pay for parking at any pay station regardless of where you are parking. For example, if you are parked in the surface lot, you can now pay for parking at the South Garage machines.
  • The machines are now accepting Discover card, as well as Visa and MasterCard, and all denominations of cash and coins.
  • The machines do not give change back for cash and coin payments.
  • The pay stations now have 4G cell service for fast processing of credit card transactions.
  • For convenience, we have added an additional pay station at the Chase House.
Pay by Plate FAQ

What is Pay by Plate?

Pay by Plate is an easier way to pay for daily campus parking. Your license plate number is used to link payment to your parking session.


What are the advantages of Pay by Plate?

  • You will have in-and-out privileges in general parking stalls.
  • You won’t have to worry about forgetting your space numbers by the time you get to the pay station.
  • Most people use the same license plate number but park in a different space each day which means you will only need to remember your license plate number.
  • License plate numbers are much easier to read than painted space numbers.


Will Pay by Plate cost more than Pay by Stall?

The price for Pay by Plate is the same as Pay by Stall.


Can I move spaces after I paid with Pay by Plate before my time expires?

Yes, you may move to any general parking stall once you have registered your license plate for the allotted time. Note that this is only valid in the general stalls and not any specially marked stalls.


Will I still be able to pay for a specific stall to park in?

No, the Pay by Stall function will be discontinued at the pay station. Pay by Plate is completely replacing Pay by Stall programming at the pay station. Attempting to enter a stall number will result in your vehicle not being registered to park for the allotted time you paid.


Can I extend my time?

You cannot extend your current parking session. If you need more time, you will need to initiate another transaction to start a new time session. You can purchase a new session and continue to stay in the same stall.


How does parking enforcement staff know I paid?

The Pay by Plate pay stations sync with parking enforcement’s equipment so staff can see the purchases made on Pay by Plate pay stations.


What do you do with my license plate information?

We take the privacy of your sensitive information seriously. The license plate information we gather through the Pay by Plate system is never marketed or sold to third parties. Only trained and authorized personnel may access the secure database that holds license plate information. The only purpose for the license plate data is to validate parking privileges.


How do I enter a special license plate?

Use the keypad on the pay station to enter your license plate including the stacked characters [alphanumeric only, no special characters]. See examples below: Vehicle License Plate License Plate to Enter AAA8103 WSMPLE DP03750 MC05445 AFSMPLE


What if I type in my plate number wrong?

It is very important to review all of your parking details before purchasing your time. Parking time sessions cannot be adjusted once started. Should you start a session on the wrong license plate, you will need to immediately start another session with the correct license plate number. If parking enforcement staff are not able to match the license plate on your vehicle with the transaction data, you will receive a parking citation.


Where should I direct further questions or concerns?
