Parking may have already been arranged for you by whomever invited you to campus.  Please check with them to find out what lot you are to park in and how you are to park.  There are several ways that departments/hosts can arrange for you to park. 

If you provided your license plate number to your host, they should have arranged your parking.  Please check with them for the details.

If you were given a pay station code, you may enter the code at the pay station in your assigned parking lot. If you were not given parking instructions, including your lot assignment, you should check with your host to find out how and where you should park on campus.
