Parking

Please be aware that routes around campus and the parking situation are in flux right now, due to construction. Find out more at http://uaaconstruction.blogspot.com/

All students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to pay for parking on UAA's main campus during the hours of 7:30am - 7:30pm, Monday through Thursday. Parking fees can be paid in the following ways:

  1. LONG-TERM PASSES - Library patrons can purchase a semester (fall, spring, summer) or a year-long parking pass from The Permit Store.
  2. FULL DAY PASSES - Patrons can purchase a full day pass at the Pay 'n Park machines located in the open parking lots, or they can purchase an unlimited number of full day passes in advance at the Consortium Library Circulation Desk. Full day passes cost $10.00 and are good in any of the open lots on campus.
  3. HOURLY PASSES - Patrons can purchase parking by the hour at any of the Pay 'n Park machines located in the University's open lots. The hourly rate is $2.00 per hour for up to 5 hours.

Parking is free on the main campus on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays; evenings after 7:30pm; during the interim period between UAA semesters; and on some holidays. Parking rules are always enforced in the dorm parking lots as well as in all restricted parking areas (brown permit spots, handicap parking, garage parking, etc.).

For more information on parking options at UAA see Parking Services' Visitor Parking & Day Passes page.
