Parking on Tempe campus

Students, faculty and staff may purchase annual and semester permits. Sun Devils who choose not to purchase a permit, as well as campus visitors, may use various daily and hourly parking options. View the news section, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for updates about parking availability and events that may affect your route to campus.

Daily and hourly

Campus visitors or Sun Devils who only need to park on campus a couple of times each week may find that daily or hourly parking best suit their needs. Daily and hourly parking is subject to availability and may be influenced by factors including campus events and construction. 

Several daily and hourly parking locations also feature pay-by-app parking. Learn more about Parkmobile.

Meter parking

On the Tempe campus, one-hour meters have gold labels, and two-hour meters have maroon labels. Review the posted time limits and regulations on meters to ensure proper payment. Nickels, dimes, quarters or payment via the Parkmobile app accepted.

Permit

Sun Devils can choose to purchase an annual or fall semester-only permit. These permits are for a specific location and are most cost-effective for students, faculty and staff who plan to be on campus three or more days each week.

Parking permits for structures use a loop system. The permit allows for one entry and exit at a time. Sharing a permit to avoid hourly parking rates may result in a citation, facility fees or loss of parking privileges.

  • part of a carpool group with an HOV permit
  • Platinum Pass or U-Pass holder
  • registered bicyclist

The Eco-Pass offers Sun Devils the flexibility of being able to park on campus on infrequent occasions at a significant savings.

Eco-Passes can be purchased for the following parking facilities:

Location Price Savings

 

Apache Boulevard Structure or Fulton Center Structure

$120 $240 less than the cost to park all day for 30 days at the posted daily rate.
Rural Road Structure or Tyler Street Structure $90 $270 less than the cost to park all day for 30 days at the posted daily rate.

Share the ride to campus. Permit holders who carpool to campus may exchange their annual parking permit for an HOV permit in the same location. A customer must purchase a permit for an HOV-eligible parking facility before applying for an HOV permit. Perks of an HOV permit include:

  • division of regular permit cost
  • each individual within the HOV group, other than the primary permit holder, is given three, all-day validation tickets to use in visitor parking structures
  • eligible to purchase an Eco-Pass
  • park in specially-marked HOV spaces typically located on the ground level of a parking structure or close to a parking facility’s entrance
