Campus parking for visitors

Parking regulations for the academic year are in effect on campus during the week (days/times below); a permit or payment via the cashless hourly parking system for metered parking is required.

Fall/Spring Semester

Monday-Thursday, 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Friday, 7:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

Summer Semester

Monday-Thursday, 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Friday, 7:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

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.
