UMKC has several metered parking lots all across campus that are available to visitors.

This pass is good for one day and will allow you to park in any of the lots on campus (metered or otherwise). Parking passes are not required for weekend programs.

Visitors must be sure to display this pass prominently, so as to not be ticketed by parking operations.
