Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to register my car if I want to park it on campus?
Yes. If you want to park your car on campus, you are required to have a permit, with the exception of the Pay-to-Park Lots.
Where can I get a parking permit?
Parking permits can be purchased online in MAVzone (Campus Life tab for students, Work Life tab for employees).
Where can I park with my permit?
A campus map showing the correct lot for each type of permit can be obtained at the Information Desk in the University Center or in the Parking Map tab of this web page.
What if I park for just a minute, or a friend or professor says it is okay to park in the lot?
It does not matter if the car was there for only a few minutes. A vehicle without a permit is considered illegally parked no matter how long it has been parked. Obtain parking information only from Parking Services.
Where can I pay a ticket?
Tickets can be paid online at https://parking.coloradomesa.edu
What if I have a visitor coming to campus?
Daily visitor passes can be purchased at the University Center Information Desk for $3 each.
How can I pay for my permit?
Online permits may be paid with a credit/debit card or billed to your student/employee account at the time it is ordered. If it is billed to your account, the permit can be paid like any other charge with cash, check, or a credit/debit card. Many loans, scholarships and other financial aid may also be used to pay for your permit.
