During regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. - 4 p.m.), visitors must purchase a permit (credit cards only) at any of the three pay stations available in our visitor lots. The permit must then be displayed face up on the driver's side of the vehicle's dashboard, fully visible to parking enforcement staff.
