Guest and Visitor Pay-to-Park Information

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

The primary visitor lot is located on the east side of the Walsh Family Hall of Architecture. Additional visitor parking areas are located in the Baseball, Compton, Joyce and Walsh Architecture Lots.

Pay stations are located in the Walsh Visitor Lot (NW corner of the lot), in the Compton Lot (near the bus shelter off of Holy Cross Drive) and in the Joyce Lot (just south of the entrance to Purcell Pavilion). Please click here to see a map showing the location of the pay stations and shuttle routes. If parking reaches capacity in these lots, the permits from any of the pay stations will allow guests or visitors to park in the Dorr Road, Lake or Bulla Student Lots. The permits are not valid reserved or specially signed parking spaces.

The current rate schedule is:

  • 1hr - Free (must obtain permit and display on dash)
  • 2hrs - $1
  • 3hrs - $2
  • 4hrs - $3
  • 4+hrs - $8
