Parking on Campus

Parking on Campus

Building a better, more efficient system for parking

In 2021, Transportation Services implemented changes to our parking operations to not only modernize parking demand on campus but help us to get closer to our sustainability goals.

Aggies can park on campus for as little as $2 a day with ParkMobile, the pay-by-phone parking app. When you drive to campus, ParkMobile allows you to choose from daily rates priced incrementally based on their distance from the campus core (within a Daily A, Daily C, or Daily L zone).
