Summer Semester

Hourly parking will be available through the PayByPhone app where you can pay for short term parking with your smart phone. After 1:00 p.m. on Friday, you may park in a metered space without paying, or park in any unoccupied space labeled "Student" or "Staff".

For researchers who plan to spend an extended period in Special Collections, it may be more convenient to purchase a day or week pass from UNLV Parking Services, which will enable you to park in any student space.
