What is PayByPhone Parking and how can I use it?


University Event Coordinators of the host department will typically email information related to any special event parking arrangements to attendees in advance.


State-issued handicap parking placards alone do not authorize parking on any of the surface parking lots exclusively reserved for UConn paid permit parking.  Visitors with state-issued handicap placards/plates may park within any of UConn's fee-paid parking spaces such as PayByPhone, metered or garage parking spaces.

Visitors have the option to park by the recreation center in a metered space which accepts coins.

Visitors can also park in either the North or South Garage located on campus.

Accessible parking is available in either garage.

Apartment Complex – Visitor Parking (Storrs)

Apartment Complex - Visitor Parking: Visitor parking is available as posted within each of the following University apartment complexes in Storrs:  
  • Charter Oak Apartments
  • Hilltop Apartments
  • Northwood Apartments
Three (3) hours is the maximum period (per day) for which a vehicle can remain parked in visitor parking space(s) surrounding any one of the above-mentioned apartment complexes.  The 3-hour visitor parking time limit is enforced between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and  9:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parking enforcement officers “time” vehicles by entering their registration numbers into the enforcement system and categorically associating them with the “Visitor” parking at a specific apartment complex.  The enforcement officers return to that apartment complex and repeat the process after waiting three hours. It is assumed that each “timed” vehicle remains parked at the apartment complex during that three-hour timing period.  When the owner of a vehicle moves from one visitor parking space to another within the same apartment complex while being timed by the enforcement officers, and stays more than the 3-hour maximum period, the vehicle will be cited for an over-time violation.

Oversize Vehicle Parking

Those who plan to arrive on campus in a vehicle that exceed 8 feet in height or width, or 16 feet in length (with or without trailer) must arrange parking using the following Oversize Vehicle Parking Request Form.
