 Garage Paylot Instructions:

Pay Stations

The paylot is an un-manned system in the parking garage near S 7th and Grant. Please enter the garage, park in a numbered spot without a 30-minute sign or a Reserved sign, and bring your license plate number to the pre-pay stations located in the corner near the stairwells.

We are currently using a license plate reading system, so your receipt does not need to be placed on the dash. Please be sure to enter the vehicle license plate number correctly to avoid a citation. 


Conference and Event Participants/Vendors:

If you are attending a conference on campus, you should have received parking information in advance. If prior arrangements were not made, please be sure to purchase a parking pass or pay in the parking garage prior to attending the event to avoid citation. Event coordinators, department hosts, and any staff or students which invite guests to campus are responsible for providing the appropriate parking information. 

To request temporary permission to use campus loading docks, service drives, and delivery areas from University Police, please call us at 406-994-1723 during business hours. Please call 406-994-2121 and select option 3 for after hours permission.
