PARKING on the UNLV CAMPUS

Parking Enforcement
According to the UNLV Parking Services web pages, parking permits are required in order to park on campus Monday – Thursday 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Friday 7:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. (http://www.unlv.edu/parking/permits 04/02/13). At other times (later Friday afternoon through 7:00 a.m. on Monday), you can park without a permit anywhere on campus except in a handicapped (unless you have a permit) or a reserved space. Do not ever park in a reserved parking space! These are clearly marked, monitored 24/7, and will be ticketed on weekends as well as during the week.

Visitor Parking Permits and Where To Get Them
Visitor parking permits allow the holder to park in student spaces only. The cost for a visitor permit is $3.00 per day or $7.00 per week.

Daily and weekly visitor permits are available from

  • the information desk on the lower level of the Student Union (#38 on the campus map; adjacent to Lot D). Hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. Mondays – Fridays and noon – 11:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays;

  • the pay station in the Tropicana Parking Garage (#13 on the UNLV campus map);

  • the Guest Suites or dorms for those staying on campus (purchase at time of check-in); and

  • if purchased in advance with your meeting registration, at the Pacific Division Registration Desk, located on the second floor of the Student Union. The Registration Desk will be open Sunday, 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., Monday 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Tuesday 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Wednesday 7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Where to Park before Getting Your Visitor Parking Permit
If you arrive Friday afternoon, Saturday, or Sunday to check into your Guest Suite or dorm room, you can park in any lot except for the reserved spaces in Lot G or handicapped spaces unless you have a handicap vehicular permit. We suggest Lot E, the faculty lot which is beside Tonopah Hall, the location of the Guest Suites and dorm rooms for our meeting.

If you arrive any time between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, there are a couple of options. The best is to park in Lot D, entry to which is gained at the intersection of Maryland Parkway and Harmon Avenue. This is a metered lot and costs $1 per hour. There are also a few metered parking spaces in Lot V, just north of Lot D, on the other side of Harmon Avenue entrance to campus. If these lots are full, the next best place to park will be the Tropicana Garage, #13 on the map and which also has metered parking available.

Once you have purchased a permit and parked, you can pick up your longer term permit by going to the Student Union (Building 38, adjacent to Lot D—see above) or checking in to your room in Tonopah Hall (#35 on the campus map and kitty-corner from the Student Union).

Where to Park Once You Have Your Parking Permit
If you arrive Friday afternoon, Saturday, or Sunday to check into your Guest Suite or dorm room, you can park in any lot except for the reserved spaces in Lot G or handicapped spaces unless you have a handicap vehicular permit. We suggest Lot E, the faculty lot which is beside Tonopah Hall and is accessed from University Road (turn west off of Maryland Parkway). Tonopah Hall is where the Guest Suites and dorm rooms are.

If you arrive any time between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, there are a couple of options. The best is to park in Lot D, entry to which is gained at the intersection of Maryland Parkway and Harmon Avenue (turn west from Maryland Parkway into the parking lot at Harmon Avenue). This is a metered lot and costs $1 per hour. There are also a few metered parking spaces in Lot V, situated on the other side of the Harmon Avenue entrance to campus. If these lots are full, the next best place to park will be the Tropicana Garage, #13 on the map and which also has metered parking available. Tropicana garage is accessed off of Tropicana Avenue by turning north onto campus at Wilbur Street (signal between Swenson Street and Maryland Parkway).

Once you have purchased a short-term permit and parked, you can pick up your longer term permit by going to the Student Union (#38, adjacent to Lot D—see above) or upon check-in to your room in Tonopah Hall (#35 on the campus map and kitty-corner from the Student Union).
