Metered Lots

"Pay and Display" Parking Metersparking meter close up

In MIC and Summit Parking lots, you will find kiosk style parking meters that are referred to as "Pay and Display". These meters are operational between the hours of 8am-4pm, Monday-Friday, when school is in session.

To use meters:

  1. find a parking spot,
  2. go to the kiosk and insert US coins, bills, or credit card*,
  3. the machine gives you a receipt,
  4. and then place the receipt on your dashboard.

*Master Card, Visa, Amex, and Discover can be used. There is a one hour minimum if you use a credit card.
Each 15 minute block costs 25 cents, for the first hour. After one hour, you must purchase time in one hour blocks, up to four hours.  The machine does not make change.

Who can park here?

Any Champlain faculty, staff, or commuter student can use the metered spots for 4 hour maximum when the meters are on (Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm) and for free all other hours. A Champlain permit is required—including the FREE zone 1 (Lakeside) permit.

Visitors to campus, including guest speakers, may use these parking spots for free, but they must have a visitor parking permit, which their hosts can get from the Parking Office.

Those with a handicapped permit may use these spaces for free at any time.

Residential students may only use these parking spots after 4pm, Monday-Friday and on weekends.
