Park Mobile expands into University Union Visitor Lot

University Parking has expanded Park Mobile into the University Union Visitor Lot. There are now three paid parking stalls, which are first come-first served, available for use. Anyone may use these parking stalls, including those with permits, as long as they also utilize the mobile pay application and the correct zone number. These three specific parking stalls are located at the end of the 15 minutes parking row. The use of other parking stalls in this lot remains unchanged. Unfamiliar with Park Mobile? Find more, here.
