Please note that no free parking is available on weekdays. Unless specified otherwise, you must pay electronically to park in a university visitor space to avoid receiving a ticket. UIUC is not liable for any tickets issued during your visit.
We recommend downloading the MobileMeter, ParkMobile, or PayByPhone app before your visit. If you don't have a smartphone, you can call 217-207-3033 to pay over the phone. The weekday rate is $1 per hour. If you'd prefer to purchase a full-day parking permit for $12, contact our university parking department at 217-333-3530 at least 24 hours before your visit. Make sure to have your credit card and license plate number available.
Following are the university parking lots we use for our programs and how to get to our facilities from those lots.
