Mobile pay for parking has officially launched on the Northeastern Illinois University campus. All you need to pay for parking is your phone.

  • First, download the free app or visit PassPort Parking to create your account.
  • Quickly register in the app with your phone number, email, or directly through Facebook.
  • Enter your zone number, which you will find on the signage located in your specific parking location.
