For LSU staff, students and campus guests: the Visitor Center can help with parking arrangements for you and your guests. Visitor Center staff can have parking permits ready in advance so that you can mail them to your guests or have them ready for immediate pick-up when they arrive on campus. The Visitor Center can also handle parking arrangements for large conferences, seminars, or meetings that you plan to hold at LSU.
Reserved parking for guests can also be arranged for your VIPs by validating a metered space or reserving a space in a reserved lot.
