Pay Stations

Visitor Parking Pay Stations - Debit or Credit Card, multiple stations, multiple languages, extend by phone


Electronic pay stations have replaced meters on the Edinburg and Brownsville campuses. Pay stations allow visitors and others to park in designated spaces (those marked as park & pay spaces) by using their credit cards. Visitors can also obtain one-day permits at the pay stations to park for free in Zone 1, 2, or 3.

  • How does it work?

    Visitors should go up to the Kiosk and follow purchasing instructions. Once the marked parking space number is entered, duration is selected, and payment is made, the pay station will print out a receipt. Park & pay does not require receipts to be displayed.
  • What if I purchase time and there are no park & pay spaces?

    Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds, so parking is at your own risk. Please ensure to park & pay and not the other way around.

  • What can I do if there’s a problem?

    Call the Parking Manager at 665-2739 for issues or problems with the pay stations. For general questions, call the Parking Services office at 665-2738.
