Parking is available in the underground structure at the Knight Management Center. Permits are required and enforced Monday through Friday from 6am to 4pm.
One-day visitor permits allow for parking in any metered space and are available for purchase for $17 each.
Valid Physical Daily Permits
If you have a physical daily “scratcher” permit you purchased previously, these permits remain valid through their expiration dates. Be sure to scratch off the correct date and hang your permit facing outward from your rear-view mirror.
You may purchase a daily permit one of two ways:
Pay-For-Parking Kiosk: You can pay for parking using the pay-by-license-plate kiosks located in the parking structure (and in lots and garages throughout campus). Simply enter your vehicle license plate number and pay with your credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). You do not need to display your receipt in your vehicle. The receipt is not valid in any other location. You have the option to purchase parking by the hour through the pay-for-parking kiosk.
P&TS Online Ordering Portal: Regardless of what time you purchase the permit, the daily permit will be charged the full-day parking rate. Stanford employees and students may use single sign-on to access the portal. All others must create a visitor account to access the portal.
Use the Parkmobile app or website to pay using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) at pay-by-license plate parking locations at the Knight Management Center parking structure. In addition to the visitor parking fee, Parkmobile charges 35 cents for each transaction.
