Visitor Transportation at UAA

This page contains information for visitors about transportation to, from and around the UAA Anchorage campus.


Visitor Parking

Visitors to campus may park without prior arrangement using the "Pay and Park" machines, at parking meters located around campus or the Parking Garages.

Pay and Park machines accept US coin and currency (NO PENNIES), VISA and MasterCard at the rate of $2.00 per hour.  The machine will issue a receipt for the time requested and that should be placed on the driver's side of the front windshield, on the dash.

Meters accept US coin (NO PENNIES) at a rate of $2.00 per hour for up to 2 hours.  Regardless of permit status, ALL users must pay to park in the metered spaces.  If the meter is not functioning properly it is a NO PARKING ZONE; you must find a working meter or use the "Pay and Park" machines to park in a regular space in the lot.

Day passes are also available at our office (Campus Bookstore Basement), the Consortium Library Circulation Desk, or the Campus Bookstore. Day passes are valid in all surface parking lots, not in metered spaces. Day passes are $10 each.
