Pay by Phone to Park at UNLV

Paying for parking meters at UNLV just got easier. The university  recently started using the Pay By Phone smartphone app to eliminate  the need for digging through your pockets, purse, or car for change.

There are three ways you can sign up for an account:

Smartphone - Download the 'PayByPhone' app from the Apple or Android app store, or enter m.paybyphone.com in your phone's browser.

Computer - Visit www.paybyphone.com

Phone - Call 1-866-234-7275 and follow the prompts.

When you register for an account, you will be able to enter up to three vehicles. From the app or by phone, you will enter the meter location number and the desired parking time. Campus meters eligible for Pay By Phone are marked with the location number. The app can send text message reminders when time is about to expire, and time can be added remotely.
