Parking at Stanford is free on Saturdays and Sundays but requires permit or payment on other days of the week. For our mid-campus location, the best options are parking at Wilbur Field Garage at Campus Drive East and Arguello Mall, or Tresidder Lot near Tresidder Union and the Faculty Club, off Mayfield Avenue. Both lots are $2/hour. Pay by credit card at the parking machines located on the lot, or pay in advance by downloading the ParkMobile app.
