Daily Parking Permits

Daily parking permits are available for purchase from machines located in most student parking lots. Daily permit fees are $1 per hour, with a daily limit of $5. Due to their inability to provide change, machines only accept bills and coins, and exact change is required. The machines are positioned at the east end of Lot 1 as you approach, in the middle of the lot near the disabled parking spaces, and near the main entrance near the bungalows. Additional machines are situated at the southern entrances to Lots 2 and 3, the west entrance of Lot 4, and adjacent to each elevator on each floor of the parking structure.

Virtual daily visitor/student parking permits are available for purchase online using the ParkMobile app. This allows students to purchase a virtual hourly/daily permit from a smart device. The campus code for Mesa College is 21003.
