Visitor Parking

Stanford requires permits for its on-campus lots. Visitors may park in lots or spaces designated with a green "P" or an "E" sign. Parking in these spaces costs $2.00 per hour between 8:00am and 4:00pm., Monday through Friday.  Weekend and holiday parking is normally free.


Visitor parking will have either a meter at the parking space or a permit vending machine located in the parking lot. Coins are necessary for meters; pay machines generally accept currency, coins, and credit cards.  There is a two-hour limit at meters unless displaying a permit issued from vending machine.
