Guest Codes

 On South Campus where there is not a reserved visitor parking lot such as Cumnock (North) and Salem (East), faculty and staff may request guest codes for their approved visitors. These guest codes are entered in the parking kiosk upon their arrival and waive the fees for their stay.

To request a Guest Code, please e-mail UCAPS@uml.edu with the following information:
  • Event description (if applicable)
  • Guest name(s) or number of guests
  • Date of Arrival
  • Arrival Time
  • Departure Time

In return, you will receive a code that should be shared with the guests that can be entered on the day of their visit. Please note that this code will only be valid on the day of their visit, on the campus they are arriving to, and only for the number of guests registered (e.g. if you requested three guest codes and a forth is entered, it will be rejected).
