meter

  • Meters at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are enforced from 7:00 am-7:30 pm, Monday-Friday and 7:00 am-Noon on Saturdays. You must pay to park at all meters on campus during the listed hours of enforcement. Lack of change while parked at a meter is not a legitimate justification to avoid a citation. 
  • Meters are not enforced on Sunday or holidays when the University is closed for business.
  • UNL meters accept and operate on U.S. quarters only on City Campus and nickels, dimes, and quarters only on East Campus. No Canadian coins, other foreign coins, or tokens are authorized by the meter program.
  • "Backing into a Meter" or appear to back into a meter is a violation of UNL Parking rules and regulations and may result in the issuance of a citation. The vehicle must be parked forward facing the meter. 

Meter Locations

  • The UNL Parking & Transit Services have meters spread throughout both City and East Campus.  In addition, the City of Lincoln has parking meters on many of the city streets adjacent to City Campus. If you park at a meter owned by the City of Lincoln, you are not allowed to add time to the meter after your initial deposit of coins.  You may use the UNL meters and add money as often as you like.
  • UNL meters have maximum time limits between 30 minutes and 4 hours.  Make sure you check the meter closely to determine the maximum time allowed.  The 30 minute meters are intended for short time deliveries or use. They are not intended for use by students attending class.
  • The coin operation rates for parking at meters on UNL are $.50/hr. or $1.00/hr. The rates are displayed in the dome of the meter.

Meter Maintenance and Repairs

  • "Out-of-Order" reports come from customers, enforcement personnel, and regular audits performed during collections. 
  • In order to report meters "Out-of-Order", call 402-472-1800 or stop into UNL Parking and Transit at 625 Stadium Drive, Suite A.  You will be asked the meter number, location, a description of the problem, and the time of reported malfunction when you make your report.
  • You may not park at meters flashing "Fail" or "Out of Order" unless you use the pay by phone service . UNL Parking & Transit will not issue refunds for any monies deposited in these meters.
  • It is the goal of UNL Parking & Transit to inspect and repair all meters within two business days of being reported. All meter maintenance is accomplished utilizing a handheld diagnostic computer, as well as the cycling of coins through the meter.

City Streets

Meters located on city streets operated by the City of Lincoln are also available.
