Vendor Parking FAQs
All vendors and contractors will be directed to park in lot 28-S, which can be found on the campus map link on Columbus States parking page at cscc.edu/parking. Since this lot is somewhat remote to campus, vendors and contractors will have 30-minute dock privileges to load and unload materials. Parking in lot 28-S is free for vendors and contractors. If vendors and contractors choose to park in other lots closer to the main part of campus, they will use the Parking.com app for daily parking OR contact our Parking Office to purchase a monthly parking pass.
If you use the Parking.com app, you may park in any lot with the Parking.com signage. If you purchase a monthly pass, the Parking Office will notify you of the lot(s) in which you are permitted to park.
Infrequent visitors would register their vehicles and pay for parking using Parking.com. The rates are $2 per hour for the first hour and $1 per hour for each hour thereafter.
Longer-term vendor/contractor passes can be purchased by contacting SP+ directly. These passes are sold by month, semester, or year: $70 per month, $280 per semester, or $840 per year.
If you have registered your vehicle using Parking.com or have a monthly permit, that is all you need. However, if you are parking for free in lot 28-S, you will need something on your vehicle to prove you are with a particular company. Personal vehicles with no business indicators will not be permitted to park in loading/unloading zones.
All parkers will need to park in a way that their license plates are viewable from the aisle. Note: Backing in or pulling through is prohibited unless you have front plates on your vehicle.
