Visitor Parking

Campus visitors and Vanderbilt community memebers can now use new hourly paid parking spaces in select parking lots and garages across campus for short- term and visitor parking needs.  These spaces are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Current parking meters are in the process of being converted to this new system, and additional spaces will be added on campus.

Powered by parking app Park Mobile, this new system will offer the following contactless payment options:

  • Download the Park Mobile app on the App Store and Google Play
  • Scan the QR code on the signs where you park
  • Text PARK to 77223
  • Individuals without smartphones can call 877-727-5015

Parking is $3.50/hour.  All pay by phone transactions will incur a $0.45 transaction fee, including each extension of parking.

Parking lots and garages with hourly paid parking include: Lot 3, Lot 5A, Lot 5B, Wesley Place Garage (Lot 7B), Lot 16B (Garland Ave), Lot 18A (24th Ave S), 25th Avenue Garage (Lot 20), Lot 24, Lot 25, Lot 27, Lot 63 (24th Ave S), Lot 71, Lot 76, Lot 8 Lot 95, Lot 102 (Children's Way), Lot 298A and West Garage.

A portion of these lots will be designated hourly paid parking spaces.  Be sure to check signs to ensure you have parked in the correct area.  Locations with hourly paid parking spaces will soon be updated on the parking map, and spaces will be marked with signs.  Contact to reach ParkMobile directly; for any Vanderbilt -specific questions, please contact
