Centennial Campus visitors have the option of using either paylots or pay-by-space parking.

Partners Way Deck, which is conveniently located across from Engineering Building II, has been converted to pay-by-space operation.

The pay station accepts debit and credit cards but not cash; fees are $2 for the first hour (or any portion of the hour), and $1 for each additional 30 minutes (or any portion).

A new method of payment is Passport Mobile Pay, a third party parking payment system which allows users to manage their parking from their mobile devices. With the Passport mobile app or the voice system, users can extend parking remotely without returning to the parking lot.

For more information about parking, please visit the NCSU transportation website, call 919.513.0530 or send an email to the Centennial Campus Information Booth.
