Vendor/Contractor Options

There are several parking options available for campus Vendors and Contractors. See Permit Types and Rates and Permit Prices for Today for current permit rates.

VENDORS:

Vendors who regularly visit the campus and park for extended periods have the option of purchasing a campus Vendor permit. Vendor permits provide access to posted "Vendor" spaces, in addition to A and C permit spaces. After 5pm, they are also valid at metered spaces without inserting coin. Vendor permits are sold by the day, month or through the fiscal year, and may be purchased from Transportation Services. Daily Vendor permits may also be purchased at the West and South Gate Kiosks.

Vendors also have access to any of the parking options that are available to other campus visitors. Daily visitor permits are valid in Visitor and C permit spaces, and are available for purchase at the entrance to most visitor lots. Parking meters may be utilized (up to the maximum time posted) at the rate of $1.50 per hour, and time zones are available at no cost when the vehicle is parked for no longer than the posted time limit. Vendors may also purchase an EasyPark Personal Parking Meter that may be pre-loaded with parking time in $25 increments, up to a maximum of $300. When the pre-purchased hours are used, the unit can be reloaded as needed. A refundable deposit will be collected at the time of purchase.

DELIVERY VEHICLES:

Suppliers who make short term deliveries with marked company vehicles, such as UPS, DHL, Office Max, Fed Ex, etc., are not required to purchase a permit if they park in areas appropriate for loading/unloading while making a delivery. However, couriers in personal and unmarked vehicles may use the parking options available to Vendors, as noted above.

CONTRACTORS:

Contractors who are authorized to work on projects that provide a fenced off dirt/gravel staging area can purchase a parking identifier from Transportation Services. These identifiers are offered for a $3.60 base rate, plus $2.90 for each month the permit is valid. They are valid only in the area designated for the project. Contractors who are required to park in other areas of campus, may utilize any of the parking options that are available to other campus visitors. Daily visitor permits are valid in Visitor and C permit spaces, and are available for purchase at the entrance to most visitor lots. Parking meters may be utilized (up to the maximum time posted) at the rate of $1.50 per hour, and time zones are available at no cost when the vehicle is parked for no longer than the posted time limit. Contractors may also purchase an EasyPark Personal Parking Meter.
