Pay-by-Plate & Pay-by-Phone

Most hourly parking areas at PSU now feature "Pay-by-Plate" and "Extend-by-Text" parking. This system creates new benefits for hourly parking:

  • No more receipt worries -- flipped over or hidden receipts are no longer an issue
  • Streamlined enforcement -- your chances of getting a citation are lower
  • Receive parking expiration alerts via text at no charge at most locations
  • Extend your parking time via text

Pay-by-Plate parking is simple. Just note your license plate number when you park, enter it at the pay station, pay, and take your receipt. Plus, the benefits of Extend-by-Text are available to any customer paying with Visa or Mastercard.

NOTE: Each driver uses PSU's parking facilities at their own risk and responsibility.
