Guest Daily Parking Permits

Parking for visitors, vendors and community members is available in spaces designated as Level 2. A valid permit is required. You may purchase a Level 2 daily parking permit at our two permit-dispensing machines or in the Parking Office, which is located on the north side of the Parking Facility, adjacent to lot F.

Permit machine #1 is located on the southwest corner of lot H, and permit machine #2 is located on the first floor of the Parking Facility.

Level 2 daily permits cost $5 per day. Level 2 daily permits are not valid in Level 1 parking areas. However, they are valid in Level 3. Please visit the Campus Parking Locations and Maps page to view our on-campus parking options.

Machine-issued daily permits must be displayed on the driver’s side dashboard facing up. Do not cover the vehicle identification number.

If the machine is temporarily out of order, you can purchase your daily permit from the Parking Office. Daily permits issued from the Parking Office must be displayed hanging from the rearview mirror with the date facing the front windshield.

Meters accept nickels, dimes, and quarters. Meter rates and time limits are posted in all metered parking areas.

Parking meter compliance is enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Vehicles parked at expired meters will be ticketed.

Drop-Off Locations

There are two drop-off locations—Lech Walesa Hall and the Northeastern Child Care Center. Child Care Center drop-off parking spots may be used for temporary parking associated with the drop off and pick up of children participating in the daycare program. Lech Walesa Hall drop-off spots are for drop off and pick up of students only. No parking is allowed. The Parking Office monitors these areas, and any vehicle found violating the use of these drop off spaces will be ticketed.
