To accommodate institute visitors, there are parking zones and meters situated across campus for visitors’ use. Please note that all visitor parking is first come/first served. Please visit the Visitor’s Parking Website to view more information about locations and hourly rates.

Many parking meters can be paid for using the Parkmobile app, which allows institute visitors to pay for Georgia Tech parking meters using their cell phone. Visitors may also opt to receive text message alerts and reminders prior to the meter’s expiration. Once you download the app on your phone and register an account, you can use the zone number that corresponds with each lot to pay for parking. Zone numbers for participating visitor areas are indicated below.
